Publix, Instacart partner on same-day delivery offering chainwide

LAKELAND, Florida — Publix and Instacart earlier this week announced plans to strengthen their relationship by bringing same-day grocery delivery to all Publix customers.

"We selected Instacart because we knew their approach and expertise would deliver a high-quality experience for our customers," stated Laurie Douglas, SVP and chief information officer Publix. "The overwhelming response of our customers has proven that Instacart and Publix are a strong and dynamic team. We are excited to take the next steps in building our unique relationship to dramatically grow the service in our markets."

Publix, with Instacart, is expanding the existing service over the next five months to bring Publix grocery delivery to markets in Alabama and Virginia and in new markets across Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. By 2020, Publix and Instacart are committed to offering same-day home delivery from all Publix market areas.

Instacart and Publix are now delivering in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and Tennessee.
