July 12th, 2017


As a new trend in grocery shopping, delivery services are easy, convenient and major time-savers. For that very reason, new services are popping up all over.

Instacart delivers for businesses such as Wegmans, Publix, Whole Foods, Costco and The Fresh Market, as well as specialized stores like Petco and CVS.

So, yes, you can get products like prepared meals, packaged goods, produce and dog food without leaving your home.

Instacart delivers to Richmond residents, but it’s not just for city folk. They also offer service to Rockville, Wingmead, Glen Allen, Short Pump, Wyndham, Dumbarton, Lakeside, Laurel, Henrico, Tuckahoe, Manakin-Sabot, Lorraine, Bon Air, Midlothian, Hallsboro, Woodlake and Chesterfield Court House.

Deliveries are same day. They can come within the hour or be scheduled for later delivery.
