Instacart Launches New Big & Bulky Fulfillment Solution For Retailers
Grocery technology company Instacart is introducing a new “Big & Bulky” solution for retailers to enable same-day and scheduled delivery for larger items like outdoor furniture, home office supplies, and electronics.

“By introducing Big & Bulky, consumers can now access an even wider selection of items for same-day delivery. With football season just around the corner, Instacart’s Big & Bulky solution can provide customers with items like portable grills and tents for a tailgate or a 55″ TV in case they’re watching from home — all in as fast as an hour,” said Daniel Danker, chief product officer at Instacart.

“As a retail enablement partner, our goal is to support retailers’ bottom lines by expanding their online catalogs through our enterprise solutions. We’re excited to introduce Big & Bulky today and look forward to continuing to serve as an industry-leading fulfillment platform.”

The offering enables Instacart customers to order their grocery items and household goods – such as grilling items, beverages, printer ink, or packing tape – directly alongside their large item orders for delivery, all at the same time.

The new offering will initially enable the delivery of big and bulky products from Big Lots, Container Store, Mastermind Toys, Office Depot, Spirit Halloween and Staples.

“We’re excited to continue to expand our partnership with Instacart to offer customers on their platform even greater access to products and solutions from Office Depot and OfficeMax stores,” said Jamie Columbus, vice president of eCommerce for Office Depot.

“The new Big & Bulky fulfillment solution offers busy professionals and families a quick and convenient way to receive the office and school supplies they need to succeed, with the ability to pair large items like desks, bookcases, file cabinets, office chairs, and more, with smaller items like tech accessories, binders and printer ink, for delivery together, same-day.”

To power its new offering, Instacart is relying on its enterprise-focused Carrot Delivery solution to provide end-to-end fulfillment for retailers. The solution allows retailers to meet even more customer demands by fulfilling larger item requests as well as streamlining their fulfillment pipelines, and build incremental revenue.

Instacart Shoppers who drive large vehicles will be allowed to fulfill big and bulky orders and receive larger earnings opportunities.
