A new partnership between Western Beef and Instacart means grocery shoppers can get same-day home delivery. The service is available at Western Beef stores on Long Island and elsewhere in New York and New Jersey.
The partnership offers convenience for busy families and is “a new way to have fresh groceries and everyday essentials delivered to their door in as fast as an hour,” Sarah Mastrorocco, vice president of business development for Instacart.
Shoppers can select food online or open the Instacart app on their mobile device, choose their city and store, add groceries to the grocery cart at same as in-store prices, and then pick the time to deliver the groceries within one hour or up to five days in advance before checking out. An Instacart personal shopper then picks, packs and delivers the order to the customer in the designated time frame.
For orders of $35 or more, the delivery fee is $3.99. With an Instacart Express membership for $9.99 per month or an annual fee of $99, customers get unlimited, free delivery on all orders over $35.
First-time customers of Western Beef on Instacart can enter the code INSTAWESTERN19 at checkout for free delivery on their first order of $35 or more.
