Loblaws, Canadian Superstore, and T&T grocery stores will start offering grocery delivery to millions of Canadian homes as early as next month!
Loblaw Companies Limited announced today in a press release that the new service, offered in partnership with Instacart, will launch in Toronto on December 6, while the Greater Vancouver Area will see online ordering available in January 2018 with the rest of Canadian markets to follow rapidly in the new year.
“We are a customer-led company adding new ways to make shopping easier,” said Galen G. Weston, Chairman and CEO, Loblaw Companies Limited. “We have stores minutes from most Canadians, the nation’s largest Click & Collect network, and home delivery of online beauty and apparel products. For customers who want groceries delivered right to their door, Instacart is a new and complementary convenience.”
Once launched, grocery shoppers will be able to select from nearly 30,000 products and choose a delivery window including on-demand (one-hour delivery) up to a week out.
The introduction of online shopping at Loblaws comes just months following Amazon’s acquisition of Whole Foods and coincides with the announcement of 22 pending store closures.
