PetSmart and Instacart are expanding their partnership into Canada, allowing shoppers to have greater access to the pet retailer’s private brands.
PetSmart is the first dedicated pet retailer available on the Instacart App in Canada, with more than 150 stores in the country now available to order from on the app. Through Instacart, more than 7,000 PetSmart items are available for same-day and scheduled delivery in as fast as an hour. This includes large items such as dog crates, cat towers and aquariums, as PetSmart will leverage Instacart's Big & Bulky fulfillment solution, which was launched last year.
"Pet parents continue to seek convenience and more digital shopping options, and we look to meet them with a seamless and enjoyable experience," said Cherise Ordlock, senior vice president of Digital at PetSmart. "Our partnership with Instacart is a testament to our commitment to meeting our customers where they are and giving them more ways to shop with us."
Instacart is available to over 90% of Canadian households, delivering from more than 4,000 stores across all 10 Canadian provinces, now including all PetSmart Canada locations.
"As the pet industry continues to surge in growth, customers are increasingly seeking efficient and seamless solutions to meet their beloved pets' needs," said Blake Wallace, senior director of Retail Partnerships at Instacart. "That's why we're thrilled to partner with PetSmart and offer their vast selection of pet essentials for delivery across Canada. Their customers can now conveniently access the products they need to care for their pets, with just a few clicks, making pet companionship an even more rewarding experience."
