Staples U.S. Retail will collaborate with Instacart in the launch of same-day delivery from more than 1,000 of the retailer’s locations in the United States.
The partnership offers consumers a safe and convenient way to shop for an assortment of products from trusted brands across categories from home office essentials to back-to-school necessities, cleaning supplies and personal protection equipment that addresses increased safety needs during the COVID-19 pandemic, Staples announced.
To shop for same-day delivery, Staples customers can access the Instacart marketplace at www.instacart.com/staples-usa, or the Instacart app. Each order begins with customers entering their zip codes and adding items to their virtual carts. Next, Instacart personal shoppers head to a store, pick their items and deliver orders within the timeframe customers designate: same-day, or for convenient scheduling, up to two weeks in advance. Instacart also will offer customers the opportunity to enter their Staples Rewards numbers when shopping to ensure qualifying purchases count toward their loyalty rewards.
“Staples has always taken great pride in connecting our community with the supplies and support they need,” said Mike Motz, Staples U.S. Retail CEO. “As we navigate the next chapter of our new normal together, we have an increased responsibility to provide our customers a safe, clean shopping environment, whether they are coming into our stores, picking up a curbside order or getting that order delivered. As small businesses prepare to reopen, and communities plan for the upcoming school year, we’re thrilled to partner with Instacart to enable a new same-day delivery option that is serviced by local community shoppers through their local Staples Store.”
