Instacart and Lowe’s Announce Same-Day Delivery of Home Improvement Products

Instacart, the leading online grocery platform in North America and Lowe’s today announced a partnership to pilot same-day delivery in as fast as one hour. Customers can now have approximately 20,000 Lowe’s items, including small home appliances, building supplies, light fixtures, garden and outdoor essentials and more, delivered from the store to their door. Same-day Lowe’s delivery via Instacart is initially available in Boston and Charlotte, with plans to expand in the coming months.

Lowe’s is the first dedicated home improvement partner available on the Instacart marketplace, addressing a growing consumer need as both home improvement product purchases and demand for online delivery continue.

“People across North America have shown they’re embracing the ‘do it yourself’ mentality and demand for home improvement essentials on our platform grew by more than 50 percent in 2021 compared to 2020,” said Chris Rogers, vice president of retail at Instacart. “Today, we’re proud to welcome Lowe’s to the Instacart marketplace, delivering essential items customers need to complete their projects without leaving their homes. We’re excited to help Lowe’s connect with consumers in a new way, and we look forward to growing our partnership more than the coming months.”

“Online is a key piece of our omnichannel strategy, and the combination of Lowe’s home improvement expertise and Instacart’s ability to help deliver right to your door within hours offers a new, convenient way to shop,” said Mike Shady, Lowe’s senior vice president of online. “As we explore a suite of solutions to meet our customers’ same-day and next-day delivery needs, this partnership is enhancing the customer experience and providing the choices today’s customers demand.”
