SAN FRANCISCO — PetSmart announced an expansion of its partnership with Instacart May 2, offering consumers throughout the United States same-day delivery on pet food and supplies. Through its mobile app, Instacart will offer pet products from nearly 1,500 PetSmart locations throughout the United States.
The expansion into the United States follows a successful launch of PetSmart and Instacart’s partnership in Canada, which the companies announced late March. Through the original partnership, Instacart offers customers same-day delivery on pet products from more than 150 PetSmart locations in Canada.
“At PetSmart, we exceed pet parent needs and expectations by giving them more convenient options to shop with us,” said Cherise Ordlock, senior vice president of digital at PetSmart. “By expanding our Instacart partnership into the United States, we are further enhancing our unrivaled shopping experience, providing even more convenience and accessibility to help pet parents quickly get products and solutions for pets of all species.”
Pet parents throughout the United States will now have access to thousands of PetSmart pet products, from food, treats and supplements to toys, bedding and pet supplies, delivered to their homes via Instacart. To fulfill orders, PetSmart is taking advantage of Instacart’s Big & Bulky fulfillment system, ensuring that large items, like dog crates and cat towers, can be delivered directly to consumers.
“We’re thrilled to expand our partnership with PetSmart and offer pet parents across North America access to PetSmart's unparalleled selection of pet essentials,” said Chris Rogers, chief business officer at Instacart. “From food and toys to grooming supplies, we’re excited to partner with PetSmart to deliver a seamless shopping experience for pet owners across America and make their lives easier and their pets happier with just a few clicks.”
