New Online Grocery Delivery Service Debuts in Lansing Area

Sep 7, 2017

A new online grocery service is making its debut in the Lansing area. 


San Francisco-based Instacart is already in about 85 urban markets in Michigan. 


The company is part of a growing retail industry that allows shoppers to place and pay for their orders electronically and then have their groceries delivered to them. 


Area Operations Manager Megan Zigler says they have a diverse field of clients.


“We do have people that have mobility issues, we have people that don’t have cars; and then we also offer it as a convenience to people that just hate shopping,” says Zigler. 


Instacart joins competitor Shipt in the Lansing metro area. 


The company will operate from local CVS, Petco, Kroger and Meijer stores.
