Today we’ve announced that we’ve launched Houston’s first one-hour grocery delivery service!
Starting today, Instacart customers in Houston can order groceries from both Whole Foods Market and H-E-B. Additional stores will be added in the coming weeks, and customers can combine items from multiple stores into one order.
Houston is our 14th city, we will initially serve the areas of downtown Houston and inside the loop, west of downtown, including the neighborhoods of Montrose, The Heights, River Oaks, West U, Rice Military, Memorial Park, The Galleria, Bellaire, Briargrove, Memorial Villages, Midtown, Washington Ave, Upper Kirby and the Museum District. A map of our coverage areas can be found at www.instacart.com/locations.
Houston customers who order on August 27 will receive a free month of deliveries.
“Houston is a city whose population is exploding with growth faster than any other major city outside of NYC,” said Houston City Launcher Matt O’Connor. “The proportion of young professionals who work long hours is very high in Houston and we expect the convenience of Instacart for grocery delivery to resonate with them. We had an overwhelming amount of requests from Houston to bring our service here and are excited to make this a reality. Launching in August is perfect timing as we hope to save Houstonians from lugging groceries home in the dog days of summer.”
