Instacart Orders Soar After Parting Ways with Whole Foods
SAN FRANCISCO, CA - As with all things in business, partnerships are not always set in stone. When Instacart and Whole Foods paired up, it seemed a match made in grocery heaven. However, the two parted ways in December of last year, and those behind Instacart feared the worst. Would severing ties with one of its largest partners signal its end?
According to a report from Bloomberg, this hasn’t been the case at all. In fact, the grocery delivery platform has risen to new heights ever since it departed from the organic grocer. It’s picked up multiple big-name partners, including Costco, Publix, and Wegmans, which has more than made up for the loss of Whole Foods.
Turning to an e-commerce intelligence company, Edison Trends, the news source noted that Instacart rebounded significantly after a slight dip in June. An Instacart spokesperson informed Bloomberg that this rebound has been even higher than the Edison numbers indicate, noting that order numbers have increased each month since Whole Foods left.
With retailers and consumers relying on grocery delivery services like Instacart, it seems likely that the company’s numbers will only keep growing. Stick with AndNowUKnow as we navigate the waters of grocery, delivery, and more.
