Dick’s Sporting Goods is partnering with Instacart to launch same-day delivery at more than 150 stores.
Consumers in Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Washington, D.C., can now shop from thousands of Dick’s Sporting Goods products including sporting and athletic equipment, outdoor recreation gear and apparel, footwear, and accessories for same-day delivery.
The largest U.S.-based sporting goods retailer is the latest in a long line of retailers outside Instacart’s core grocery/CPG vertical to start providing same-day delivery via the platform since the outbreak of COVID-19 in March. Other notable chains include Best Buy, Sephora, Staples, and Big Lots.
To begin shopping, Dick’s Sporting Goods customers in participating states can visit the Instacart site or download the Instacart app on their mobile device. For all orders placed, an Instacart shopper will pick and deliver the order within the customer's designated timeframe, whether they choose to receive it in as fast as an hour or schedule their delivery in advance.
"We're pleased to work with Instacart to provide another safe and convenient shopping option for our customers during the very busy last few weeks of the holiday season and beyond," said Joe Pietropola, senior VP of e-commerce at Dick’s Sporting Goods. "Our technology solutions have been able to deliver products to our athletes, however, wherever and whenever they want. By adding Instacart, we give our athletes another same-day option, which is fast and reliable delivery to their homes."
"People across the country have embraced outdoor activities this year as a way to stay active and safe, and we've seen a meaningful increase in demand for sporting goods across our marketplace,” said Chris Rogers, VP of retail at Instacart. “Customers continue to rely on Instacart as a fast and reliable same-day delivery solution for all of their needs, and we're proud to partner with Dick’s Sporting Goods to offer their incredible selection of products to customers in as fast as an hour."
