Instacart and C&S team up for online grocers
Online grocery firm Instacart and C&S Wholesale Grocers have partnered to offer ecommerce and same-day delivery solutions to more than 3,000 C&S independent grocery retailers across the US
As part of the partnership, C&S will help bring their network of independent grocers onto the Instacart marketplace. The companies will work closely to help retailers establish an ecommerce and delivery offering to meet the needs of their customers.
Once the grocer is live on the Instacart marketplace, customers can visit the Instacart website or download the mobile app, enter their city, select their store, and begin adding items to their Instacart grocery cart.
An Instacart personal shopper will pick and deliver the order within the customer's designated time frame — same-day, or for convenient scheduling, up to two weeks in advance.
"Connecting local grocers to their customers online is incredibly important to Instacart, and today the need for this is more important than ever," said Chris Rogers, VP of retail at Instacart. "It's critical that families have access to groceries and goods from the retailers they love and trust. By partnering with C&S, we're able to bring more independently-owned grocers online and ensure the communities they serve can more easily access the household essentials they need."
