Instacart and AWG are working closely together to help retailers set up an online shopping and delivery service to meet their customers' needs.

Associated Wholesale Grocers now offering Instacart smart carts to grocery members

The move is in addition to offering same-day delivery

Cooperative food wholesaler Associated Wholesale Grocers, Inc. has expanded its partnership with Instacart to offer ecommerce and same-day delivery solutions, including Caper Carts, Instacart’s AI-powered smart carts, to member retailers. With over 800 AWG member retailer locations currently using Instacart, this extended collaboration extends access for an additional 2,300 member retailer locations to join Instacart’s tech suite.

In addition to offering same-day delivery, Instacart will also equip retailers with in-store technology solutions like Caper Carts, which use computer vision and AI to automatically identify items as they are placed in the cart. Customers will also be able to link their loyalty account to the carts.

Associated Wholesale Grocers, Inc. is a cooperative food wholesaler to independently owned supermarkets, serving 1,100 member companies and more than 3,500 locations throughout 32 states from nine wholesale divisions. Consolidated sales for AWG in 2022 were $12.3 billion. In addition to its cooperative wholesale operations, the company also operates subsidiary companies that provide certain real estate and supermarket development services, health and beauty care, general merchandise, pharmaceutical products, specialty foods, and natural and organic products.
