Harps Food has a partnership with Instacart, which brought grocery delivery to select Harps Foods markets in Arkansas, Oklahoma, Kansas and Missouri in late 2018. Beginning on Thursday, January 10th, the list of Harps stores across these four states, where customers can order their favorite groceries and everyday essentials to be delivered by Instacart straight to their door, has expanded.

“We are a customer-focused company and are always looking for new ways to make shopping more convenient,” said David Ganoung, Vice President, Marketing, Harps. “The option of home delivery complements our dedication to providing our customers with convenience and quality, making it even easier to shop with us. We’re very excited to add additional stores to our home grocery delivery service list.”

With Instacart’s partnership with Harps, the grocery delivery service is now available in additional Harps areas, with more locations expected to be added as soon as March 2019.

“Instacart is proud to partner with Harps to make grocery shopping effortless for customers and families across the United States,” said Sarah Mastrorocco, Vice President of Business Development, Instacart. “In partnership with Harps, Instacart is again expanding its North American footprint, which today reaches more than 70% of U.S. households, to deliver customers the groceries they want from the local retailers like Harps that have been a part of their families for generations.”

How Instacart works: Customers go online to https://www.instacart.com or open the Instacart mobile app on their iPhone or Android device, select their city/store, add items to their virtual cart, then choose a delivery window (within one hour or up to five days in advance) and check out. An Instacart shopper will then pick, pack and deliver the order to the customer in the designated time frame.
