Shopping for groceries and everyday essentials just got a whole lot easier. Shoppers Drug Mart home delivery is now available in more Canadian cities. Their same-day delivery program has been expanded to nine new Canadian cities.
In partnership with Instacart, Shoppers Drug Mart will now deliver your online purchases straight to your door in Halifax, Regina, Calgary, Moncton, Vancouver, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Saskatoon and St. John's.
"For decades, Shoppers Drug Mart has been a destination for health and beauty products, food staples and general convenient shopping to help make life a little bit easier," said Matt Carr, VP of merchandising for Shoppers Drug Mart, in a press release. "Working with Instacart allows us to serve our customers wherever they need us, whether that's in a store or delivered right to their door."
Shoppers Drug Mart's same-day home delivery is already available in Ontario and has been since it was launched back in June.
It was confirmed to Narcity by a representative for Loblaw, which owns Shoppers Drug Mart, that currently, home delivery is available in 224 stores across Ontario.
The same-day delivery is all done through Instacart. You can use their website or their app to shop. You select your city then start adding groceries, household essentials and over-the-counter medications to your cart. A personal shopper gets your items from the store, packs them up and delivers it to you.
"Together, Instacart and Shoppers Drug Mart are helping busy people and families stock their pantries and medicine cabinets with household essentials from a local retailer they love and trust," said Andrew Nodes, VP of retail accounts for Instacart, in a press release.
Delivery fees start at $3.99 for orders that are $35 or more. Delivery is free on all orders over $35 if you have an Instacart membership.
With this service, you can get same-day delivery, in as fast as an hour, or schedule delivery up to five days in advance. The home delivery works according to your time frame.
Now, home delivery is available at 361 Shoppers Drug Mart stores across the country.
While there have been no specific expansion plans announced, a representative for Loblaw confirmed to Narcity that they "are constantly expanding into new geographies."
