Instacart and Costco Launch Same-Day Delivery Across Canada




Instacart and Costco have announced a partnership to launch same-day delivery in Costco’s 76 warehouses across Canada. According to the news release, following the previous two-month pilot program in some Ontario warehouse, this program will now be available at multiple locations.
“Grocery delivery has become essential for millions, and we’re proud to make same-day delivery from Costco available to even more Canadians. Now, through the Instacart marketplace and Costco’s new member website, families across Canada can get the groceries and goods they need, delivered to their door in a matter of hours,” said Andrew Nodes, Vice President of Retail, Instacart, in the Instacart press release. “We want to help retailers reach their customers when, where, and how they want to shop. With this launch, we’re extending the reach of Costco in Canada and making it possible for Costco members and non-members alike to access same-day delivery of Costco’s broad selection of groceries and goods.” 
The two brands also announced the launch of Costco’s brand-new Canadian member-only that has member benefits and access to same-day delivery through Instacart, and this website is built through Instacart Enterprise.
“With Instacart, we can bring even more benefits of a Costco membership to our valued members,” said Pierre Riel, Senior Vice President and Country Manager, Costco Wholesale Canada, also in the Instacart news release. “Instacart delivery will help us serve more families than ever before, and we see this new offering as a great complement to our 2-Day Grocery Delivery service that launched in 2018.”
Customers can start shopping from Costco through Instacart by going to https://www.instacart.ca/store/costco, using the Instacart mobile app on their device, or going to Costco’s member-only eCommerce website at http://sameday.costco.ca. From those places, shoppers then must select their city of choice and then adding their items to their Instacart grocery cart. The Instacart shopper will then pick up and deliver the items within the shopper’s chosen time.
This Instacart and Costco partnership in Canada comes after a successful collaboration between the two brands in the United States. According to the news release, Instacart is currently partnering with over 400 national, regional, and local retailers to offer delivery from more than 30,000 stores in over 5,500 cities across North America. Instacart delivery services are also currently available to more than 70 percent of Canadian households.
