SAN FRANCISCO -- Instacart, the technology-driven, nationwide on-demand grocery delivery service, and Big Y World Class Market, one of the largest independently owned supermarket chains in New England, have expanded their same-day grocery delivery service to select stores in the Boston and Worcester area. The service allows Big Y customers to complete their grocery shopping online, and have their orders delivered to their doors in as little as an hour.

Big Y and Instacart first joined forces in May 2017 and are expanding the partnership to provide customers in the Boston and Worcester area with the great experience of shopping at their local Big Y World Class Market, while getting back something truly valuable: time.

"We know our customers are busy, and that any found time in their week can make a difference," said Michael D'Amour, Executive Vice President for Big Y. "By partnering with an industry leader like Instacart, we're able to provide our customers with the quality and service they've come to expect from Big Y, without leaving their house."

Big Y customers can now visit  or download the Instacart app to fill their virtual carts with all their favorite items -- from produce and meat to everyday essentials -- and have them delivered straight to their doorstep by Instacart. At checkout, customers can add their Silver Savings Club number to receive advertised discounts, then choose a delivery window within one hour, two hours, or up to seven days in advance. Instacart's shoppers will do the rest.
