Last December, Whole Foods and Instacart parted ways. The one true pairing was short-lived, and many feared the worst, especially for Instacart. However, it seems that the company couldn't be better. According to a report from Bloomberg, the grocery delivery platform has moved on to bigger and better pairings, such as Costco, Publix, and Wegmans.
Turning to an e-commerce intelligence company, Edison Trends, the news source noted that Instacart rebounded significantly after a slight dip in June. An Instacart spokesperson informed Bloomberg that this rebound has been even higher than the Edison numbers indicate, noting that order numbers have increased each month since Whole Foods left.
With retailers and consumers relying on grocery delivery services like Instacart, it seems likely that the company’s numbers will only keep growing. Stay with us here at Deli Market News as we navigate the waters of grocery, delivery, and more.
