“As we continue to expand categories, our goal is to make it easier and more convenient for retailers to get online and offer on-demand delivery,” – John Maslowski, business development lead at Instacart
The big box retailer, Binny’s Beverage Depot, is partnering with Instacart to deliver alcohol on demand to Chicago residents 21 and over. Michael Binstein, owner of Binny’s, states, “We may be the biggest in Chicago, but we take pride on being locally and family owned… My father’s delivery in 1948 was on foot. Then we hired bicyclists and eventually trucks. This is the next step in almost 70 years of evolution of putting the customer first.”
Consumers who place orders must verify their age both online and when delivery is made.
