INSTACART PARTNERS WITH COSTCO, PUBLIX
AND BIG BRAND STORES
Instacart’s building technology to make their shoppers more efficient, and we’re
gonna go see how it works. – Coming into a Costco, it takes some real time and it’s
an investment, and we would like to be able to give you that time back.
What we’re doing is we’re watching our shoppers check out of a dedicated
Instacart checkout lane. People placing orders for their groceries from Costco,
with our without a membership, Instacart shoppers fulfilling those go in their own
lane,and then bringing them to their door.
For Costco as our partner to give us our own lane,it effectively means that there’s a lot
of volume going through the Instacart portal. As a result, they want to get that through
as fast as possible just like we do,so it’s nice that we get to have this integration,and our
shoppers can go through it much much much more quickly so we can deliver more orders
and get it to our customers faster. We staff it with an Instacart person,we call them a CBT, a
cashier, bagger, and tagger. And then our shoppers actually are the ones going through the
lane on the other side.
How does a shopper put an order together you may be thinking, so let’s think through the
To start the shopper will acknowledge their order from their app, and they’ll start shopping.
After a fun shopping time, pay for the order,they’re gonna push the order back over here to
our saving area, and our attendants will process the order,shelve them or put them in
refrigerator or freezer.
What our customers want is to have an experience that is as good or better than coming to
the store. Everything we try to do is in service of that,so one thing we try to do is have you be
able to shop from retailers that you really care about.
In Costco alone, we have 75 locations around the country,but we also have over
100 other retail stores that we deliver from, and that’s chains. Costco, Whole Foods, Publix,
and then some local favorites in San Francisco like an Andronico’s or a Mollie Stone’s or a Buy Rite.
We have a real time feed of every single item that we have on Instacart. This is millions of items, and
real time,is it available or is it not?
So that way a customer can feel like when they’re on Instacart that they’re
actually shopping in the store,of what’s here, what’s not. We have aisle mapping, so
we have a map of the store where we can help our shoppers go faster and pick out which
items to pick, in what order,so that they’re not going to one side of the store and then the
And then outside we actually have an area where a driver can come pick up the bag
without having to wait. And then we have things like our own parking spaces. And so it’s
truly these things like that on the integration side that help us make sure that our shoppers
can go really fast and be as efficient as possible,and deliver an awesome customer experience.
What we want to do is skip the checkout lane altogether,so we’re building technology
now that allows our shoppers to just scan the item and shop straight into the bag and skip
the checkout lane altogether,which is another thing that shaves real minutes off the order, allows us to
get it to our customers faster,and also helps us reduce the cost of the service. Instacart is expected
to roll out the bypass check out in the next six months.
