DALLAS, 2016-Aug-05 — /EPR Retail News/ — Whole Foods Market and Instacart are launching delivery in the Dallas area, making it the 25th metro where customers can use Instacart’s delivery service to order from Whole Foods Market stores. Using Instacart, shoppers can now purchase and have their groceries delivered to their homes or offices in as little as one hour from select Whole Foods Market locations, and at prices that are the same as those found in stores.
“We’ve seen how much our customers love this fast and convenient way to receive their groceries right to their door, so we are thrilled to offer this service to the Dallas community,” said Mark Dixon, president of Whole Foods Market’s Southwest Region. “Instacart has given us a way to provide customers with the highest-quality, fresh and healthy groceries, even when they can’t make it into our stores.”
“We’ve seen incredible growth and momentum over the last 12 months in our existing Texas markets, and we’re excited to be expanding into Dallas,” said Chad Shepler, general manager at Instacart. “The customer demand in Dallas has been off the charts, and we’re proud to be able to give Dallas residents convenient and quick access to fresh groceries whenever they want.”
By ordering at Instacart.com or via the Instacart mobile app, Whole Foods Market customers add items to a virtual cart, choose a delivery window (within one hour, within two hours or at a scheduled time) and check out. Orders are filled by Instacart personal shoppers. Customers with the Whole Foods Market iOS app can browse thousands of recipes, create shopping lists and then conveniently order the ingredients from the Instacart app. The seamless integration offers recipe inspiration, preparation and purchase in one simple, user-friendly experience.
