7-Eleven is expanding its partnership with Instacart in the U.S. to bring 30-minute delivery to nearly 4,000 new stores nationwide.
With this expansion, Instacart now delivers from nearly 6,000 7-Eleven stores, reaching nearly 60 million U.S. households across 33 states and Washington D.C. Consumers can choose from thousands of essential products, including pantry staples, household items, snacks, over-the-counter medication, and more. Customers across seven states, including California, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Missouri, New York and Ohio, and Washington D.C., now also have access to alcohol delivery in as fast as 30 minutes. The companies plan to scale alcohol delivery to more states and stores over the coming months.
"We know the way customers shop for their groceries and goods varies week-by-week. Sometimes people need a full fridge and pantry restock and other times they just need a few things quickly like some snacks for the kids, a bottle of wine for dinner or over-the-counter medication to nurse a headache," said Chris Rogers, VP of retail at Instacart. "As more people turn to Instacart to help put food on their tables, we've seen customer demand for convenience retailers increase over the last year, with convenience orders on Instacart up by more than 350% since last August."
"7-Eleven strives to be the world's leader in convenience, which means giving customers what they want, when, where and how they want it," said 7–Eleven SVP and head of digital Raghu Mahadevan. "Customers on Instacart can now benefit from thousands of products to be delivered from a 7-Eleven store to their door in 30 minutes or less."
