Costco rolls out home delivery
Costco Wholesale members who are loyal to the warehouse club’s Kirkland Signature private brand can now get the line’s products and others delivered to their homes.
Richard Galanti, CEO of Issaquah, Wash.-based Costco, said last week during an earnings call that Costco was implementing CostcoGrocery, which will provide two-day delivery on dry goods and sundries items, and same-day delivery for fresh foods, produce and dry goods through a partnership with Instacart. The latter is currently live at 376 locations in the United States, with more stores planning to add it by the end of fiscal 2018, Galanti said. About 1,700 SKUs, both dry and fresh, are offered through the Instacart option.
The two-day delivery will feature nearly 500 dry grocery SKUs with free delivery on items over $75, Galanti said. Boxes can be up to 40 pounds and will be shipped through UPS with orders fulfilled at several of Costco’s business delivery centers.
“We’d expect to expand these offerings over time,” Galanti said.
