Instacart, Target Expand Partnership to Chicago
Same-day grocery delivery service Instacart is expanding its partnership with big-box retailer Target to Chicago, following initial success in both the Minneapolis and San Francisco markets.
Customers in Chicago can now order fresh food and grocery, health and beauty products, pet and household supplies, and baby items from Target and have them delivered to their homes in as little as one hour. The expansion timing was selected to provide guests in Chicago with another Target fulfillment option during the busy holiday season, with prices on Instacart the same as Target’s in-store prices.
“Our continued growth with Target in both Minneapolis and San Francisco has confirmed our customers’ demand for Target on Instacart,” said John Maslowski, Instacart business development lead. “We are very excited to expand our partnership to Chicago to provide even more customers convenient, same-day delivery of Target’s great assortment. With the holiday season upon us and winter well on its way, we are happy to provide our customers with the opportunity to shop at Target through Instacart during this busy time of the year.”
In addition to Target, customers throughout Chicago can also order from Whole Foods Market, Costco (no membership needed), Petco, Mariano’s, Plum Market, Tony’s Finer Foods, Pete’s Fresh Market, Local Foods and Jewel-Osco. Instacart has also partnered with other regional grocers, including Marsh Supermarkets, Bi-Rite and Cub Foods.
