Hy-Vee will expand its grocery drop-off offerings under new partnerships with delivery services Shipt and Instacart.
The agreements will allow Hy-Vee shoppers in Iowa to use Shipt or Instacart to order groceries and have them delivered to their home on the same day.
The Iowa-based grocery store chain will continue to run its Hy-Vee Aisles Online service, which offers grocery pickup.
A Hy-Vee spokeswoman said that while same-day delivery is available through Aisles Online, time slots fill up quickly, so the Shipt and Instacart partnerships will expand that availability.
The expanded delivery service will be available in Cedar Rapids, Iowa City, Des Moines, Dubuque, Davenport, Waterloo and Mason City in August. It will be available to other Hy-Vee stores in Kansas, Illinois, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska and South Dakota between July 24 and September, the company added.
Customers who want to use Shipt or Instacart will need to sign up and order online through those specific companies. The delivery service may come with fees.
