We’ll continue to increase our footprint across Canada and create the best online grocery shopping experience possible for both our retail partners and customers.”
“We applaud Instacart’s work with Canadian retailers, particularly the small businesses that are the backbone of the Canadian economy,” said Barry Lanteigne, President at Distribution Canada Inc. “As independent grocers continue to evolve their omnichannel strategies, we look forward to continuing our work with Instacart to bring independent grocers across Canadaonline.”
