Supervalu Expands Instacart Agreement for All Stores
Wholesaler-retailer Supervalu Inc. has signed a multiyear deal with third-party grocery delivery service Instacart to expand its ecommerce services and platforms.
The deal includes click-and-collect and recently refreshed Powered by Instacart sites that will soon provide integration of store coupons and loyalty rewards for online orders. The new capabilities will be available across Minnesota; St. Louis; Virginia Beach, Va.; and the Washington, D.C., area, for the approximately 200 locations collectively under the Cub, Farm Fresh Food and Pharmacy, Shop ‘n Save, and Shoppers Food and Pharmacy banners, Supervalu told Progressive Grocer.
Supervalu and San Francisco-based Instacart first teamed to offer same-day grocery delivery in September 2015. The new agreement comes after customer response and demand for more ecommerce options.
