PHOENIX — Phoenix-area residents who are looking for a more convenient way to get groceries are in luck: Bashas’ recently partnered with an internet-based grocery delivery service to offer shoppers same-day delivery service.
The Arizona-based grocer partnered with Instacart, an internet-based service that “delivers groceries from local stores in two hours,” to offer Arizonans the same convenient service.
The service will be offered to residents in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Paradise Valley, Tempe, Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa and Ahwatukee, the grocer said in a recent press release.
To use Instacart, residents just have to go online, enter their zip code, create an account, add their items and choose a delivery time window.
The first delivery is free, but subsequent deliveries will cost $5.99 for orders more than $35.
For those who think they will use the service more often, there is an “Express” membership available for $149, for a year of unlimited free deliveries on orders $35 and up.
Instacart General Manager Sean Twersky said in the release that an “overwhelming number” of Bashas’ shoppers asked “for their groceries to be delivered through our service.”
Ashley Shick, a spokeswoman for the Bashas’ grocer, said in the release that the company is “thrilled to help our shoppers save time through this innovative delivery service option.”
Bashas’ shoppers can save $20 off their first order that is more than $35 and get free delivery by using the promotion code “GetBashas” through March 31.
