Wegmans Food Markets has partnered with Instacart to roll out a new program in which customers may conduct their shopping online and have their groceries delivered to their home in as little as an hour. Wegmans’ Leesburg and Dulles stores are among the first to offer the service.
Customers can go to instacart.wegmans.com or use the Instacart App to place their order and confirm that they live within the delivery area. At checkout, they can add their Wegmans Shoppers Club number to receive available discounts and choose a delivery window within one hour, two hours, or up to seven days in advance.
“We know our customers are busy, and that any found time in their week can make a difference. That’s where we can help—by giving them the option to have Wegmans delivered fresh to their door,” stated Heather Pawlowski, vice president of e-commerce for Wegmans. “By partnering with an industry leader like Instacart, we’re able to provide our customers with a seamless shopping experience with the quality and service they’ve come to expect from Wegmans, without leaving their house.”
Same-day delivery from Wegmans also is offered at the stores in Alexandria and Fairfax, in Virginia and at the Columbia, Hunt Valley, Ownings Mills, Crofton, Woodmore and Germantown stores in Maryland.
The first Instacart delivery is free for new customers and $5.99 after that on orders of $35 or more. Instacart Express membership is also available for an annual fee, enabling unlimited free one-hour deliveries on orders over $35. After a free trial period, the annual fee varies by location from $99 to $149. In addition, Wegmans adds a small price increase to cover the cost of shopping for customer orders.
