Walmart, Instacart expand grocery delivery across Canada

Walmart Canada and Instacart announced the national expansion of their relationship, which will bring on-demand grocery delivery services from nearly 200 Walmart stores across Canada in as fast as an hour.walmart

The expansion builds on a successful 17-store pilot in the greater Toronto area and Winnipeg, which has been strongly embraced by Walmart customers. Instacart’s on-demand delivery brings Walmart’s wide variety of products to millions of Canadian customers across the country — including fresh fruits and vegetables, meat, seafood and dairy, as well as health and beauty products, household goods, pet food, baby food, diapers and much more.

The new Instacart on-demand delivery option is the latest in a suite of services offered by Walmart Canada and third-party partners to help Walmart customers shop where, when and how they want. In addition to the new delivery option with Instacart, Walmart Canada customers can choose the option that works best for them, including:

  • Grocery pickup in-store at 175 Walmart stores – which will expand to 190 stores by the end of January
  • Pickup at nine urban PenguinPickUp locations in the Greater Toronto Area
  • Next-day delivery anywhere in the Greater Toronto Area by ordering through Walmart.ca
  • Shopping in-store at 340 Walmart Supercentres

“Canadian families are busy. By introducing more online shopping options at Walmart, we’re helping make life easier and more convenient for them,” said Lee Tappenden, president and chief executive officer of Walmart Canada. “Expanding our relationship with Instacart provides our customers with even more time-saving ways to shop at Walmart in their community.”

“Instacart is proud to have grown its partnership with Walmart Canada to help make it even easier for valued customers to get the groceries and household essentials they need quickly and easily,” said Nilam Ganenthiran, Instacart’s chief business officer. “Our expanded collaboration shows that demand for online grocery delivery continues to grow in Canada, and we’re proud to work with Walmart Canada to extend their delivery reach into new regions and give customers more ways to access Walmart Canada’s everyday low prices.”

The service is now available to customers in communities throughout British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Newfoundland and Labrador, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.
