Instacart Provides Delivery for Family Dollar
Supporting the growing number of consumers relying on grocery delivery, Family Dollar has partnered with Instacart to deliver from more than 6,000 of its stores across the United States.
With this new partnership, customers now have access to same-day delivery of Family Dollar's broad and cost-efficient selection of household goods, pantry and baby essentials, electronics, office and school supplies, personal care items, and more in as fast as an hour. This expansion builds on the companies' successful 275-store pilot that initially launched in late 2020.
"Providing same-day delivery is another example of our efforts to better meet the evolving needs of our Family Dollar shoppers," said Mike Witynski, president and CEO of Dollar Tree Inc. "We are encouraged by the initial results of our pilot stores and are pleased to expand the Instacart platform to more than 6,000 Family Dollar stores across the country."
