Save Mart Banners Now Offer Same-Day Delivery
The Save Mart Cos. now offers same-day home delivery through Instacart at all of its stores in California and Nevada, having just added the service at Save Mart and FoodMaxx stores. The partnership began at Lucky and Lucky California banners earlier this spring. In addition to groceries, California customers can include alcohol in their orders.
“We are excited to expand our Instacart online shopping and home delivery services throughout the operating area of our Save Mart, FoodMaxx, Lucky and Lucky California stores,” said Barbara Walker, CMO for The Save Mart Cos. “Instacart’s service allows us an easy point of access to offer online the great values found in our stores, including high quality, locally grown produce, ready-to-eat meal solutions, [and] meat and seafood.”
Customers shop online via the Instacart website or mobile app, and can include their Save Smart and Lucky You Rewards number to earn points on their purchases. Deliveries can be scheduled any time after one hour or up to five days in advance.
The delivery fee is $3.99 for orders over $35, or shoppers can get an Instacart Express membership for $9.99 per month or $99 annually. Save Mart is offering deals for first-time customers including SAVEMART20 or 20OFFFOODMAXX for $20 off a shopper's first order of $35 or more.
