Rite Aid Partners with Instacart for Front-End Delivery Service

Rite Aid today announced a new partnership with Instacart which will allow customers to conveniently order and receive essential healthcare and grocery items delivered directly to their homes during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.

Instacart delivery is now available from Rite Aid’s more than 2,400 locations across 18 states. Customers can visit or, where they can access a full catalog of healthcare and grocery products from their local store, excluding prescription medications. All Instacart orders now default to “Leave at My Door Delivery,” in order to maintain social distance and allow customers to receive deliveries safely.

“At Rite Aid, we are focused on providing our customers and communities with the essentials they need during these unprecedented times,” said Rite Aid COO Jim Peters. “To further enhance our services, we have teamed up with Instacart to offer our customers another convenient method of shopping at Rite Aid from the safety and comfort of home.”

“We know people and families are depending on delivery to get their groceries and household essentials now more than ever, and we’re proud to partner with Rite Aid to offer customers another stay-at-home shopping alternative in the wake of COVID-19,” said Nilam Ganenthiran, President of Instacart. “Bringing Rite Aid’s broad selection of healthcare and grocery products online will give customers more access to the goods they need, delivered directly from the store to their door.”

Through Rite Aid’s new Instacart delivery service, customers can shop for the essential products and groceries they need online. An Instacart personal shopper will pick, pack and deliver available products within the customer’s designated timeframe, offering an efficient alternative to in-store shopping.
