Wegmans storms Manhattan

Four months after opening in Brooklyn, Wegmans Food Markets is now offering grocery delivery to Manhattan residents with the help of delivery provider Instacart.wegg

“Expanding delivery into Manhattan has been on our radar since opening our Brooklyn store,” said Erica Tickle, director of e-Commerce for Wegmans. “We’ve heard from customers this would make life easier for them, and with major investments in e-commerce like our new website and app, the timing couldn’t be better to make ordering favorite Wegmans brand products and fresh foods available for delivery to Manhattan.”

With the expanded radius, delivery is now available to all Manhattan zip codes. To accommodate the longer drive times, delivery to Manhattan addresses often requires longer delivery windows, ranging between two and five hours.

“In partnership with Instacart, we’ve seen tremendous growth and success with our online grocery shopping and delivery services,” Tickle explained. “It represents a growing percentage of our sales, and with larger delivery radiuses, we’re able to reach more customers in New York, and other markets where traffic and transportation prohibit customers from coming to us.”

Customers can also shop Wegmans online at Instacart.wegmans.com or the Instacart app.

“By expanding our partnership to enable delivery from the Wegmans Brooklyn location into Manhattan, we’re giving New Yorkers a convenient, new way to get the groceries and household essentials they need from the grocer they love,” said Andrew Nodes, vice president of retail at Instacart. “The Brooklyn store opening was a big moment for New Yorkers, especially to those who have been shopping at Wegmans outside of the city for generations. At Instacart, we’re proud to offer busy people and families a new way to get their Wegmans store favorites, delivered directly to their door across New York City.”
