Online grocery platform, Instacart, is expanding its same-day delivery service to Quebec.
The company is enabling both customers and retailers to experience its offering entirely in French. This marks the first time Instacart is offering its services in a language other than English.
“Over the last year, Instacart has served as a lifeline for millions of Canadians, delivering groceries and essentials from more than 1,800 stores across more than 35 retailers countrywide,” said Chris Rogers, Vice President of Retail at Instacart.
“With today’s launch, we’re taking another step toward deepening our commitment to Canada, creating a new way for Quebecers to connect with local brick-and-mortar retailers and seamlessly get the goods they need delivered. We’re proud to introduce Instacart’s first-ever French-language experience in Quebec, and look forward to finding more ways for customers to engage with the local retailers they know, love and trust.”
Through Instacart’s service, Montreal-based customers can have their groceries and goods delivered in less than an hour from nearly 25 Costco, Les Aliments M&M and Walmart locations.
“We’re thrilled to expand same-day delivery of Costco products to Quebec,” said Pierre Riel, Senior Vice President Country Manager at Costco Canada. “By expanding our relationship with Instacart, our members will have even more ways to get the most out of their membership.”
Over the next coming months, Instacart has plans to expand its services to Quebec City, Sherbrooke and Gatineau. It also plans to expand its partnerships with brands such as Pharmaprix and Sephora in the Canadian market.
Instacart is now accessible in all 10 Canadian provinces and is currently available to more than 1 million households in Quebec.
Quebec residents can begin shopping on the online grocery platform by going to www.instacart.ca or by opening up the app on their mobile device.
