If the idea of fighting traffic on the way to the grocery store, driving in circles looking for parking, trying to find every BOGO deal possible, only to stand in a long line waiting for a customer two people away count endless coupons and pay with a check that hasn’t been filled out yet doesn’t excite you, there is good news. Starting today, Instacart, a new grocery delivery program, begins servicing many areas of the Midlands.
According to Instacart spokesman Kelsey Glass, Instacart is now available in over 50 cities across the country, and offers store to door delivery. According to Glass, users of the program shop online or on the app, then an Instacart shopper goes to the store, shops, then delivers the products right to their door, all for a service fee of $5.99. Shoppers can select name brands, store brands, and take advantage of many special offers made by the retailers. Glass says that often times the prices are no different than if you shopped for yourself, so the significance is in time and frustration that is saved from using the service.
