Walmart and Instacart are growing their partnership to serve more shoppers nationwide, including from 31 B.C. stores. “The expansion builds on a successful 17-store pilot in the Greater Toronto Area and Winnipeg, which has been strongly embraced by Walmart customers,” notes a news release.

Shoppers can choose their delivery window, ranging from one hour to five days in advance.

According to a Walmart rep, the following B.C. communities now have access to Instacart on demand delivery:

  • Abbotsford
  • Mission
  • Port Coquitlam
  • New Westminster
  • Coquitlam
  • Burnaby
  • Burnaby Metrotown
  • Chilliwack
  • Langley
  • Surrey (S)

  • Campbell River
  • Courtenay
  • Kamloops

Walmart adds that some of the B.C. communities have more than one store in the area participating.

Instacart first began serving Metro Vancouver in February 2018, offering shoppers access to the Loblaw family of stores like Real Canadian Superstore and T&T.

You can go to Instacart’s Walmart landing page to see if your neighbourhood store now delivers to you, and you can also find a nice little discount code via Walmart’s news release to save some bucks.
