Instacart most effective in grocery order test

If you’ve tried ordering groceries for delivery this week, it isn’t you. In a coronavirus era, the old rules and expectations have been thrown out the window. 

Getting online groceries delivered is currently a major challenge, as demand is overwhelming the companies that offer the services. 

Many retail stores have closed, so many of us have turned to online shopping for food. Restaurants are serving the public with deliveries, but getting groceries ordered and delivered is hit and miss, at least according to USA TODAY tests Tuesday.

We tried shopping on e-commerce powerhouse Amazon and the company-owned Whole Foods Market website, which regularly touts online shopping, as well as competitors Walmart and Target, supermarket chain Vons, and supermarket delivery apps Peapod and Instacart. 


Instacart was most effective. The app serves as a service for 25,000 grocery stores, or half of America’s markets, according to the company.
