People today have increasingly hectic lifestyles, and it would be nice to have one less thing to worry about…like grocery shopping, for instance. When you combine making a list, traveling to and from the store and browsing numerous aisles to find what you’re searching for, one thing is certain – shopping is time-consuming. Thankfully, there has been a growing number of retailers who are taking this to heart by offering more convenient ways to purchase groceries, such as online shopping.
The benefits are irrefutable and plenty. Most importantly, it saves time – and gas money too! There’s no need to worry over business hours either. Whether it’s 10:00 am or 3:00 am, you have the advantage of a fully stocked store. Also, it reduces unnecessary spending by eliminating impulse buying.
Some lucky shoppers can now order their groceries through Instacart and have them delivered to their door in as little as one hour. This innovative new shopping venture works by featuring personal shoppers who sort and deliver your items, and in recent years Instacart has built their clientele to include several high-profile grocery chains and retailers worldwide. One of these chains is Bashas’, who employs more than 8,000 people and operates 100-plus stores. Bashas’ recently joined forces with Instacart to deliver groceries to residents in certain Scottsdale, Phoenix, Tempe, Paradise Valley, Gilbert, Chandler, Ahwatukee, and Mesa area zip codes.
The way Instacart works is simple. Shoppers visit the new Bashas’ grocery website at bashas.instacart.com, where they select the products they want to purchase and then choose a delivery option. Groceries can be delivered within one hour, two hours or even one week in advance. The first delivery is free, with deliveries thereafter costing $5.99 for orders of $35 or more. Or you can purchase an Express membership for just $149 and receive unlimited free deliveries each year.
