Instacart: Your own personal grocery shopper

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

A new business called ‘Instacart’ allows you to grocery shop from home.

The business just got to Chicago a few months ago, and is already looking to expand.

It’s a grocery service that hires personal shoppers to pick up your stuff at the store of your choice, and deliver it to you - with their own personal cars - within a couple hours if you want.

The personal shoppers will shop at Costco, Jewel, Mariano's, Stanley’s and Whole Foods, as well as Plum Market. They deliver as far north as Winnetka and as west as Lincolnwood. The company is hoping to add more areas north and south of the city because the business has become so popular.

Delivery fees start at $3.99 and go as high as $14.99 if you want your groceries within the hour.

For more information, visit Instacart’s website.
