SAN FRANCISCO — Instacart, the leading grocery technology company in North America, is inviting people nationwide to get the tree lot delivered to them this holiday season. For the first time, Instacart customers can now order fresh-cut trees, artificial trees, and a wide variety of seasonal decor via the Instacart App for same-day delivery from a variety of grocery, wholesale, home improvement, and specialty stores across the country.*
“We’re excited to offer Instacart customers same-day, nationwide tree delivery this holiday season,” said Daniel Danker, Chief Product Officer at Instacart. “Trimming a holiday tree is a beloved annual tradition for many families and we’re delighted to offer a convenient and time-saving way for customers to get their trees and seasonal decor with just a few taps, so they can spend more time holiday-ing and less time hauling.”
Whether you don’t have a big enough car or just want to save some time, Instacart is providing customers a convenient way to get the centerpiece of their holiday celebrations delivered directly to their homes, alongside the rest of their seasonal decor from retail stores nationwide. The program is powered by Instacart’s Big & Bulky technology and community of more than 600,000 shoppers. Big & Bulky is a recently launched fulfillment solution that enables retailers to offer same-day and scheduled delivery for large items up to 60 pounds.
Live trees up to five feet tall are available for same-day Instacart delivery, and customers can also request they be trimmed and leveled via the Delivery Instructions section before checking out in the Instacart App. In addition to the all-new same-day live tree delivery, Instacart also delivers artificial trees up to nine feet tall, ornaments, tree trimmings, string lights, table decorations, and more.
