A leading specialty retailer of storage and organization products is enabling online delivery in as little as an hour.

The Container Store is partnering with Instacart to offer customers same-day delivery of its full product assortment from all of its 93 store locations. The new service has kicked off across Texas, with plans to expand nationwide across 33 states and Washington, D.C., in the coming weeks. 

To begin shopping from The Container Store for same-day delivery via Instacart, customers can visit the dedicated Container Store page on the Instacart site or download the Instacart mobile app. An Instacart shopper will pick, pack and deliver the order within the customer’s designated timeframe – in as fast as an hour or for advance scheduled delivery. Customers will have the ability to chat directly with their Instacart shopper as their order is being picked and will receive real-time updates as their order is shipped and delivered. 

Many other chains not operating in Instacart’s core grocery/CPG vertical have started providing same-day delivery via the platform since the outbreak of COVID-19 in March 2020. Notable examples include Michaels, Dick’s Sporting Goods, and Best Buy.

"Consumer buying behavior has changed increasingly in the past year and our partnership with Instacart is going to allow us to meet our customers' ever-changing needs," said Satish Malhotra, CEO of The Container Store. "We are thrilled to offer the convenience of same-day delivery to our customers, which will save them valuable time and help them accomplish their projects faster than ever before."

“We’re proud to unlock same-day delivery from The Container Store to give customers nationwide more selection and a new way to get much needed storage and organization products,” said Nilam Ganenthiran, president of Instacart. “From refreshing a home office with desktop solutions, enhancing a closet with new hangers or upgrading food storage in the kitchen pantry, customers can now access The Container Store via Instacart and get exactly what they need delivered from the store to their door in as fast as an hour.” 

Based in Coppell, Texas, The Container Store Group Inc. offers more than 11,000 products, and also offers a full suite of custom closets designed to accommodate all sizes, styles and budgets. San Francisco-based Instacart has partnered with more than 600 national, regional and local retailers to deliver from more than 45,000 stores across more than 5,500 cities in North America.
