A number of prominent retailers are among the first clients of a new Instacart service aimed at fulfilling online orders for big products.
Instacart is launching “Big & Bulky,” a new fulfillment capability that enables same-day and scheduled delivery for large items, “Big & Bulky” nationwide. The service is designed to enable retailers to offer more of their catalogs online.
Big Lots, Container Store, Mastermind Toys, Office Depot, Spirit Halloween, and Staples are some of the first retailers to use Instacart’s new Big & Bulky fulfillment solution. The retailers are now offering same-day delivery of larger items such as outdoor furniture, home office supplies and electronics via the Instacart app. In some cases, Big & Bulky is also offered via retailers’ own Instacart-powered websites.Chain Store Age
