In partnership with Instacart, Big Y’s Fresh Acres Market store in Springfield, Massachusetts, now offers same-day grocery delivery service. With that addition, Big Y and Instacart now provide delivery from all Big Y market locations. Big Y has partnered with Instacart since May 2017.
“We’re proud to expand our partnership with Big Y further to bring customers access to Fresh Acres Market’s gourmet food and fresh produce delivered to their door in as fast as an hour,” said Andrew Nodes, VP of retail for Instacart. “Fresh Acres is a beloved local artisan grocer and our expanded delivery options make it even easier for busy people and families to get the groceries they need from fresh produce, meats and pantry staples from their favorite neighborhood retailer.”
“We know our customers are busy, and that any found time in their week can make a difference,” said Roger Gouin, Fresh Acres store director. “By partnering with an industry leader like Instacart, we’re able to provide our customers with the quality service they’ve come to expect from Fresh Acres, without leaving their house.”
Fresh Acres customers can open the Instacart app on their mobile device. Customers can then choose a delivery window within one hour or up to five days in advance before checking out. An Instacart personal shopper will pick, pack and deliver the order to the customer in the designated time frame.
For orders of $35 or more, the delivery fee is $3.99. With an Instacart Express membership for $9.99 per month or an annual fee of $99, customers get unlimited free delivery on all orders that are more than $35.
