SAN FRANCISCO — Instacart, the nation’s leading online grocery delivery service, continues to expand with non-food retailers in a new partnership with DICK’S Sporting Goods, the country’s largest sporting goods chain.
DICK’S operates 732 stores in the U.S. but has just launched same-day delivery with Instacart in only 150 stores in nine states just before Christmas.
Customers in Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Washington D.C. can now shop from thousands of DICK’S Sporting Goods products including sporting and athletic equipment, outdoor recreation gear and apparel, footwear, accessories and more for same-day delivery.
“People across the country have embraced outdoor activities this year as a way to stay active and safe, and we’ve seen a meaningful increase in demand for sporting goods across our marketplace. Customers continue to rely on Instacart as a fast and reliable same-day delivery solution for all of their needs, and we’re proud to partner with DICK’S Sporting Goods to offer their incredible selection of products to customers in as fast as an hour,” said Chris Rogers, Vice President of Retail at Instacart. “Whether it’s a last-minute holiday gift for the outdoor enthusiast in your life or new running, hiking or biking gear for your weekend activities, we’re giving DICK’S Sporting Goods customers access to all the top-quality sporting goods they need, when and where they want them.”
“We’re pleased to work with Instacart to provide another safe and convenient shopping option for our customers during the very busy last few weeks of the holiday season and beyond,” said Joe Pietropola, Senior Vice President of eCommerce at DICK’S Sporting Goods. “Our technology solutions have been able to deliver products to our athletes, however, wherever and whenever they want. By adding Instacart, we give our athletes another same-day option, which is fast and reliable delivery to their homes.”
To begin shopping, DICK’S Sporting Goods customers in participating states can visit www.instacart.com/dicks-sporting-goods or download the Instacart app on their mobile device. For all orders placed, an Instacart shopper will pick and deliver the order within the customer’s designated timeframe – whether they choose to receive it in as fast as an hour or schedule their delivery in advance.
Instacart has launched and expanded with a number of retail partners in 2020 to provide greater selection on the Instacart marketplace including Best Buy, Sephora and Disney Store. Customers can use Instacart for all of their same-day delivery needs – from fresh produce, pantry goods and household essentials to beauty and wellness products, electronics and now, sporting goods. Instacart partners with more than 500 national, regional and local retailers, including unique brand names, across North America to deliver from nearly 40,000 stores across more than 5,500 cities in the U.S. – including all 50 states – and Canada.
