WESTBOROUGH, Mass. and SAN FRANCISCO, March 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- BJ's Wholesale Club today announced an expanded partnership with Instacart to offer members even more convenience with same-day delivery in cities along the east coast.

"We're thrilled to bring same-day delivery to BJ's shoppers," said Rafeh Masood, senior vice president and Chief Digital Officer, BJ's Wholesale Club. "BJ's is focused on delivering unbeatable value and convenience to our members; the expanded partnership with Instacart gives members a new and easy way to shop the club without leaving their home." 

BJ's members will now have access to same-day delivery on thousands of items including premium deli meats and cheeses, produce, meat and frozen foods in addition to household items like diapers, paper goods, nutritional supplements and pet products.

Members who place their orders for Instacart delivery via https://delivery.bjs.com/ will receive lower, member-only pricing, saving up to 25 percent or more on groceries compared to supermarket pricing*. BJ's also offers a larger variety of fresh foods than other clubs and is the only major wholesale club to offer a full-service deli - now with the added convenience of same-day delivery in as little as an hour.

"Instacart proudly joined forces with BJ's Wholesale Club in 2015 to offer same-day delivery," said Andrew Nodes, Instacart's Vice President of Retail Accounts. "We have seen an incredible response to the partnership and are thrilled to expand upon that partnership to be their exclusive partner bringing same-day delivery of BJ's premium products to even more households across the U.S."

Same-day delivery at BJ's will be offered at all BJ's Clubs by the end of April and will offer a simplified fee model with low, in-club pricing for BJ's members.

The expanded partnership with Instacart is the latest addition to BJ's growing list of digital conveniences for members including Add-to-Card digital coupons, PICK UP and Pay® and the BJ's mobile app.

Shoppers can learn more and experience same-day delivery by visiting delivery.bjs.com.

*25% savings is based on Member pricing on a basket of 100 national brand household staples, on an unpromoted unit-price basis, when compared to four leading grocery chains in our trade areas. Learn more at www.bjs.com/25percentterms.
