In the throes of a hot Texas summer, there’s nothing worse than having to leave the house to buy a bunch of groceries, or worse, booze. Instead of sweating your pants off, you can now officially let Instacart do the shopping.
Starting today, Instacart will begin operating in ten Dallas zip codes. The service works with eight Dallas retailers, including Central Market, Whole Foods, and Spec’s, to deliver groceries, booze, and other assorted sundries directly to your door. Available in Austin and Houston since 2014, Dallas is the fourth Texas city where Instacart is available.
Using the app, you can communicate directly with a "personal shopper," who probably won’t judge you when you ask for that third carton of ice cream. Delivery is a flat $5.95, and can be expected within an hour, two hours, or scheduled out a week in advance.
If you somehow need more incentive to sit your lazy, overheated ass at home and let someone else do the shopping, Instacart will donate one meal to the North Texas Food Bank for every order in the first month.
