Giant Food Partners with Instacart to Bolster Delivery
WASHINGTON D.C. - Giant Food has paired up with grocery delivery Instacart to service its customers in the D.C. area, kicking off the partnership yesterday.
If you are wondering about the retailer’s current delivery service through Peapod, it will continue to utilize it with Instacart added to bolster that aspect of its business.
Only delivering to Giant customers placing orders with zip codes in the District, Giant Food’s Manager of Public & Community Relations, Jamie Miller, said the chain will evaluate the pilot with Instacart over time to determine how well it complements its current online ordering, and whether it will be expanded outside of just the District, according to a WTop report.
Instacart has successfully teamed up with a number of retailers in the last year as delivery continues to expand in retail. The company currently works with names like Target, Harris Teeter, H-E-B, Safeway, and Costco.
Most recently, as we previously reported, the San Francisco-based business signed a five-year agreement with Whole Foods, who touts the company’s role in the amount of produce it has sold since first signing on in 2014.
Will its latest partnership with Giant Food be equally as successful? AndNowUKnow will continue to report on the new duo as we find out.
