Walmart’s retail warehouse chain Sam’s Club has partnered with Instacart to launch a same-day home delivery service in Austin, Dallas-Fort Worth and St. Louis in the US.
Sam’s Club customers living in these regions can purchase a wide range of products such as fresh meat, frozen foods and everyday essentials from the company’s website, as well as get their orders delivered through Instacart.
Sam’s Club’s omnichannel and in-club product vice-president Sachin Padwal said: “We know our members love our mix of exciting items and appreciate it when we make life a little easier for them.
“Whether it’s Scan & Go, Club Pickup, and now delivery in as little as an hour, shopping with Sam’s Club is getting easier and more convenient, and we’re just getting started.
“Instacart is a trusted partner by so many customers, we are thrilled to be launching this service with them.”
Instacart customers will also have the option to shop at local Sam’s Clubs without a membership and access to Sam’s Club’s signature savings and bulk shopping options.
Instacart business development vice-president Sarah Mastrorocco said: “As Instacart continues to expand to new markets and reach new customers at a blistering pace, valued and respected brands such as Sam’s Club are the driving force behind it.
“We are thrilled to add value to their existing operations while bringing the convenience of same-day delivery to more North Americans every day.”
Sam’s Club is also planning to expand this service to other US cities this year.
Earlier this month, Amazon launched a free two-hour delivery service for Whole Foods Market products via its Prime Now service.
The service was initially introduced for Prime customers living in Austin, Cincinnati, Dallas and Virginia Beach.
