Instacart Partners With Andronico's Community Markets on Pickup Service

Available Exclusively in Marin at Andronico's San Anselmo Store Location

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - April 12, 2016) - Instacart (www.Instacart.com), the fast-growing retail delivery service whose personal shoppers hand pick and deliver items from trusted local stores, announced today a new pickup service available at Andronico's Community Markets' San Anselmo store location. Starting today, Marin residents can now order online through Instacart virtually anything carried at the San Anselmo Andronico's store and pick up their order at that location within an hour.

Andronico's, founded in 1929 and a Bay Area favorite focuses on providing local, natural and organic products to customers. They feature traditional grocery items alongside specialty poultry and sustainable produce. Andronico's recently reached $1 million in Instacart sales, and with this new service customers will have another online ordering option. Instacart Pickup allows customers to place their grocery order online at their convenience and schedule a one-hour parking lot pickup window that best fits their schedule.

"Instacart has been a fantastic partner for us in the Bay Area -- our customers thrive on the convenience" said Suzy L Monford, CEO of Andronico's Community Markets. "We wanted to expand our partnership in the Bay Area to reach suburban customers, and the best way to do that is through a pickup service."

"We're excited to expand our relationship with Andronico's Community Markets," said Siddhartha Agarwal, General Manager of San Francisco at Instacart. "Most families spend one-to-three hours a week shopping for groceries. Our hope is that Marin customers can capitalize on this time-saving service, and have a convenient, reliable grocery shopping experience."

How Instacart Pickup works: Customers go online to www.Instacart.com or open the Instacart mobile app on their iPhone or Android device, select their city and store, add items to a virtual cart, and then choose a pickup window (within one hour, within two hours, or some scheduled time in the future) and check out. A personal shopper accepts the order on his/her smartphone, uses the Instacart Shopper app to guide them through shopping, and then prepares the order for pickup.
