Sprouts Farmers Market will expand its grocery pickup service with Instacart to all of its more than 340 stores by early May as an added convenience for shoppers during the crisis due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The rapid expansion will first roll out to Los Angeles and Central California locations. Additional local market expansion details will be announced later. Before this announcement, Sprouts offered pickup at 55 stores and grocery delivery in all major markets via Instacart.
Sprouts shoppers from Los Angeles to Fresno now can schedule a convenient curbside pickup at 25 stores. Customers can shop among more than 12,000 fresh, natural and organic products at sprouts.com/order to be picked up at participating Sprouts stores.
The service, in partnership with Instacart, allows customers to plan grocery pick up for the same day or to schedule several days in advance, subject to availability.
