No matter what your situation is, a quick on-demand grocery service has arrived in Houston. Instacart launched today, August
2627, in the downtown and Inner Loop areas of the city, giving customers options to order food from H-E-B and Whole Foods. In coming weeks, Instacart will add more grocery stores for shoppers. Online shoppers will then have the chance to place items from multiple stores in their virtual shopping carts.
"At any given time, we have a group of personal shoppers on shift in Houston who are kind of waiting for customers to place their orders," Instacart Houston City Launcher Matt O'Connor says. "When the customer places their order, it goes to the personal shopper's smart phone, they go through the store and pick the items based on that shopping list, check out and take it to the customer's door."More »
