As travel is restricted during this coronavirus period, grocery shopping has become more complicated for some people. This is why we are seeing an increase in the use of online grocery services. We already told you in a previous article about the grocery stores that deliver in Montreal.
Today we’re going to talk about a handy shopping app. Instacart is one of the most popular grocery delivery services, so we thought this would be a good time to tell you a little bit more about it.
Instacart lets you shop online at local grocery stores, then sends a “personal shopper” who will pick up and deliver your order the same day. Instacart is not a grocery store, so the company does not store fresh produce in a huge warehouse.
Instead, consumers shop at major grocery stores in their area, Provigo for example, via the Instacart website. Their order is then sent to an Instacart employee. This “personal shopper” goes to the store, picks up everything on the list, and then drives to the designated address in their own car. Think of it as the Uber of Grocery Delivery!
Is Instacart available everywhere?
To find out, just go to the website here and enter your postal code. Thus, the site will tell you if your geographic area is served by Instacart services.
With whom does Instacart work in Quebec?
While Instacart works with many supermarkets such as Costco and Walmart in the United States and the rest of Canada, Instacart is only partnered with Provigo in Quebec at the moment. However, Instacart’s partnerships may expand over time. Stay informed!
How much does it cost to get groceries delivered with Instacart?
Your first delivery with Instacart is free and you don’t have to be a member to do your grocery shopping with Instacart. After your first delivery, the cost amounts to $ 3.99 for deliveries of $35 and more.
Regarding grocery costs, these have nothing to do with Instacart. It only depends on the grocery store from which you choose your products.
Make your work easier especially during this period and use the simple solution offered by Instacart. Otherwise, you can choose another grocery store that offers delivery with the list we made recently here! If you are in Montreal, do not hesitate to visit Trylon for a stay in an apartment that makes you feel at home.
