Instacart has announced fresh Christmas tree delivery. For the first time, the same-day delivery platform will now deliver fresh and artificial Christmas trees from grocery stores and other retailers. Customers can order both fresh-cut and artificial Christmas trees, as well as other large holiday décor, from grocery stores and other retailers for the first time. The offering is made possible through Instacart’s Big & Bulky channel, which delivers extra-large items up to 60 pounds.
“Trimming a holiday tree is a beloved annual tradition for many families, and we’re delighted to offer a convenient and time-saving way for customers to get their trees and seasonal décor with just a few taps, so they can spend more time holiday-ing and less time hauling,” Instacart Chief Product Officer Daniel Danker said in a statement.
Live trees up to five feet tall are available for same-day Instacart delivery, and customers can even request trees be trimmed and leveled in the delivery instructions section of the app. Instacart will also deliver artificial trees that are even larger, up to nine feet tall.
“With Big & Bulky, customers can order their grocery items and household goods—such as grilling items, beverages printer ink or packing tape—directly alongside their large item orders for delivery at the same time,” Instacart said. “Whether they are tailgating for the big game, building a home office or planning a residential move, customers can now rely on Instacart for all of their shopping needs with a single order.”
