Instacart Partners with Family-Owned Store Grow to Offer Customers Same Day Delivery in Downtown Los Angeles

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - March 08, 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 partnership with Grow in order to serve businesses in Downtown Los Angeles. Starting today, customers in Downtown Los Angeles will be able to order local and organic produce, groceries, dairy, meat and seafood, and have them delivered straight to their doorsteps in as little as one hour.

Grow founders, Barry and Kathy Fisher, say their market began as a cherry stand run by their son in their front yard in 2006. With its success they've since expanded to their second location in Downtown Los Angeles. The market specializes in top-notch produce, sustainably raised meats and seafood, quality dairy products, and organic/non-GMO groceries.

"A partnership with Instacart gives our customers the opportunity to shop fresh groceries and products whether they are at home or at work. We couldn't be more excited to GROW our DTLA community through delivery." said Kathy Fisher.

Office managers, young professionals, and working parents will be able to save time and money by ordering groceries through Grow on the Instacart platform.

"All of our customers should have fast and easy access to healthy foods, which is why we're thrilled to bring a family-owned retailer that supports this lifestyle onto our platform," said Instacart's General Manager of Los Angeles, Sean Twersky. "We're looking forward to bringing Grow to more customers throughout Downtown Los Angeles."

Instacart Grow delivery is available across multiple Downtown Los Angeles neighborhoods.

How Instacart works: Customers go online to www.Instacart.com or open the Instacart mobile app on their iPhone, Android device or tablet, select their city and store, add items to a virtual cart, and then choose a delivery window (within one hour, within two hours, or some scheduled time in the future) and check out.
