There's nothing worse than realizing you need something from the grocery store in short order but either can't get out or have no means of transportation to take you to the store. In an ever-increasing instant-gratification society, your chances of still getting what you need are happening more and more, and now you will actually be able to shop Martin's Super Markets in St. Joseph and Stevensville and get same-day delivery, in some cases within an hour's time span.
Instacart, a North American leader in online groceries, today announced a new partnership with Martin’s Super Markets, adding same-day delivery services from select stores across Indiana and Michigan as of May 16th.
Sarah Mastrorocco, Vice President of Business Development for Instacart says, “We’re proud to partner with Martin’s Super Markets to bring their loyal customers a new way to have fresh groceries and everyday essentials delivered to their door in as fast as an hour.” She adds, “Busy people and families in Northern Indiana and Southern Michigan have been shopping at Martin’s for decades. We’re excited to add Martin’s to Instacart’s marketplace to allow even more customers to have the groceries they need delivered from their favorite local retailer.”
Meanwhile, Amy Simeri McClellan, who serves as Senior Vice President of Martin's Markets and Division Vice President of Retail for corporate parent SpartanNash, says, “We’re continually exploring new and innovative services that help make our customers’ grocery shopping easier and more satisfying, and Instacart is one of those partners. Instacart is an important way we can provide an additional option for shoppers who lead increasingly busy lives.”
