Can’t make it to the mall? Instacart can now pick up your groceries and beauty products, too!
Instacart users can add a new store to their slate of home delivery options. Beauty retailer Sephora is now offering same-day delivery with Instacart to stores in the U.S. and Canada. Now, along with essentials like food, paper products, and other household goods, you can get your favorite hair, makeup, and skincare products delivered to your door in as little as one hour. The new partnership is part of Sephora’s efforts to get products into the hands of customers who aren’t comfortable taking a trip to the mall.
Sephora already offers next-day shipping options from the website, but the process is still subject to third-party delays. Instacart ordering allows customers to shop and choose products at the local Sephora that are in-stock and ready to be delivered same-day. Shoppers will still get loyalty point purchases through the Instacart portal and can also take advantage of special sales and flash deals.
"Instacart has become part of the household rhythm for people across North America looking to have the groceries and goods they need delivered same-day from the retailers they know and love," said Chris Rogers, Vice President of Retail at Instacart. "For many people, the essentials they need go beyond fresh food and pantry staples and, over the last few years, we've seen an increase in customer demand for personal care, wellness and beauty products. Now, for the first time ever, customers across North America can get their makeup, skincare, wellness products, and more delivered from the Sephora store to their door in as fast as an hour."
Currently, only select markets are up and running with the rest of the 400 stores slated to begin deliveries in the next few weeks. To see if your area is eligible, visit Instacart.com and enter your address.
