InstaCart launching Baltimore home grocery delivery

BALTIMORE — Many Baltimore residents will now be able to have groceries delivered from Whole Foods Market, BJs Wholesale Club, Safeway and Harris Teeter, the Baltimore Business Journal reported.

InstaCart, a San Francisco-based startup, is launching in the city, and will deliver from all those stores and more — including Price Rite, and even Petco (for pet food and supplies).

Users will be able to go online and select from one of the retailers, and can have their groceries delivered in as little as two hours to their home. The base delivery fee is $5.99 per order, but InstaCart also offers a yearlong pass for $149 with unlimited deliveries.

At launch, delivery will be restricted to Federal Hill, Locust Point, Fells Point, the Inner Harbor and downtown. InstaCart says it plans to eventually expand to the entire city — and even the surrounding counties.
“This is very much just a starting point,” said Vishwa Chandra, the vice president of retail accounts at InstaCart.

The startup became interested in expanding into the city after users started going onto their website and requesting it come to Baltimore.
