Online grocery platform, Instacart, and arts and crafts retailer, Michaels, have announced an expanded partnership to launch same-day delivery from more than 100 of the latter’s stores across Canada.
This closely follows an expanded nationwide partnership in the US.
Michaels is the first specialty arts and crafts retailer on the Instacart platform.
Customers can now shop from its assortment of more than 22,000 items across categories like fine arts, yarn, paper crafts, baking, and jewellery making, delivered in as fast as an hour from over 1,200 locations across North America.
“For nearly 50 years, Michaels has inspired consumers across North America to pursue their creative goals with its broad selection of arts and crafts supplies,” says Chris Rogers, Vice President of Retail at Instacart
“We’re proud to expand our footprint with Michaels across North America today, making it possible for families in Canada to get the materials they need — whether looking for an art canvas, scrapbook accessory or kids activity — delivered directly to their door in as fast as an hour.”
Heather Bennett, Executive Vice President of Marketing and E-commerce at Michaels, comments: “We are proud to be giving our Makers across North America even more ways to shop and create through our deepened partnership with Instacart.”
“As the first specialty arts and crafts retailer on the platform, this expansion to offer super fast delivery from our stores across Canada is the latest step in our journey to transform our omnichannel approach and support every Maker in bringing their creative dreams to life.”
