(Purchase, NY) October 12, 2021 – Committed to providing customers with convenient ways to shop, Stop & Shop is taking convenience to a new level, partnering with Instacart, the leading online grocery platform in North America, to launch Stop & Shop Express. Stop & Shop Express allows customers to shop for groceries, convenience items, and other household essentials delivered to them in as fast as 30 minutes. Stop & Shop is the first grocery retailer in the Northeast to make this service available with Instacart.
Perfect for when you forget the key ingredient in a recipe, just ran out of diapers, or crave a late-night snack, customers will be able to choose from more than 30,000 convenience items like prepared foods, snacks, beverages, paper goods, cleaners, and baby products via Stop & Shop Express. Stop & Shop Express is available to shoppers across Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York and New Jersey.
To celebrate the launch of Stop & Shop Express, customers will receive $20 off their $30 order beginning Tuesday, October 19 with the code Save20on30VC*.

Stop & Shop Express will join Instacart’s Convenience Hub, an Instacart Marketplace product feature that streamlines the convenience shopping experience for customers. Convenience delivery allows customers to access the essentials they need in as fast as 30 minutes - when they need just a few items quickly - supplementing their weekly grocery shop.

In July 2020, the grocer expanded its availability on Instacart to 321 locations, making same-day, contactless delivery accessible from more than 75% of its stores.
“We’re proud to expand our long-standing partnership with Stop & Shop to provide customers with an unmatched convenience delivery offering,” said Chris Rogers, Vice President of Retail at Instacart. “From a last minute baking or dinner ingredient to toothpaste and paper goods, we’re thrilled to give customers an easier and faster way to access their convenience shopping needs.
