Instacart, an on-demand grocery delivery service, and Big Y World Class Markets, one of the largest independently owned supermarket chains in New England, have expanded their same-day grocery delivery service to select stores in the Boston and Worcester areas. The service allows Big Y customers to complete their grocery shopping online and have their orders delivered to their doors in as little as one hour. Big Y and Instacart first joined forces in May.
“We know our customers are busy and that any found time in their week can make a difference,” said Michael D’Amour, EVP for Big Y. “By partnering with an industry leader like Instacart, we’re able to provide our customers with the quality and service they’ve come to expect from Big Y without leaving their house.”
