Sam’s Club partners with Instacart

Walmart unit, Sam’s club announced on Tuesday that it had partnered with Instacart to provide its customers the convenience of same-day, home delivery. The warehouse chain Sam’s Club said the service will be available to shoppers in Austin and Dallas-Fort Worth in Texas, and St. Louis, who can place orders for everything from fresh produce to small appliances without membership.

“We know our members love our mix of exciting items and appreciate it when we make life a little easier for them. Whether it’s Scan & Go, Club Pickup – and now delivery in as little as an hour — shopping with Sam’s Club is getting easier and more convenient, and we’re just getting started,” said Sachin Padwal, Sam’s Club’s Vice President of Omnichannel and In-Club Product. “Instacart is a trusted partner by so many customers, we are thrilled to be launching this service with them,” Padwal said.

“As Instacart continues to expand to new markets and reach new customers at a blistering pace, valued and respected brands such as Sam’s Club are the driving force behind it,” said Sarah Mastrorocco, Instacart’s Vice President of Business Development.

The move comes as its parent company looks for ways to compete with Costco, that partners with Instacart. Walmart, however, has no direct partnership with the delivery service.
