Albertsons teams up with Instacart for one-hour deliveries

US-based grocery retailer Albertsons is now offering its customers same-day deliveries in as little as one hour through an agreement with the on-demand specialist Instacart.

In a statement issued on Tuesday (28 November), Shane Sampson, Albertsons Companies Chief Marketing and Merchandising Officer, said: “Instacart’s extensive delivery network combined with Albertsons Companies existing home delivery services and established, robust e-commerce offering creates a fantastic customer proposition.”

Under the agreement, Instacart’s delivery service is expected to be available in more than 1,800 of Albertsons Companies’ customers’ favorite stores across the country by mid-2018.

Earlier this year, Albertsons began rolling out same day delivery and Drive-up & Go, and acquired meal kit company Plated.

Albertsons Companies current home delivery network and digital programs will continue to serve its growing customer base in existing markets.
