SAN FRANCISCO — Family Dollar is partnering with Instacart to offer same-day delivery from more than 6,000 stores.
The move, which builds on a successful 275-store pilot that initially launched in late-2020, will give customers access to same-day delivery (in as little as one hour) of Family Dollar’s broad and affordable selection of household goods, pantry and baby essentials, electronics, office and school supplies, and personal care items.
“Providing same-day delivery is another example of our efforts to better meet the evolving needs of our Family Dollar shoppers,” said Dollar Tree Inc. president and chief executive officer Mike Witynski. “We are encouraged by the initial results of our pilot stores, and are pleased to expand the Instacart platform to more than 6,000 Family Dollar stores across the country.”
To begin shopping from Family Dollar, customers can visit www.instacart.com/family-dollar or download the Instacart app on their mobile device. Instacart shoppers pick and deliver the order within the customer’s chosen delivery time frame – in as little as an hour, or days in advance.
“Whether stocking up the fridge or pantry, enhancing a home office or virtual school space, or buying everyday at-home essentials, we know value and affordability are top of mind for people across the country,” Instacart vice president of retail Chris Rogers said. “Family Dollar offers a variety of low-cost items for the entire family, and we’re proud to partner with them to offer same-day delivery nationwide. As one of the nation’s fastest-growing retailers, we’re excited to help Family Dollar connect with and serve the delivery needs of their customers, and look forward to partnering with them to offer even more selection and choice to customers on the Instacart marketplace.”
