Camping World Holdings, the world’s largest recreational vehicle dealer, is partnering with Instacart to offer same-day deliveries from over 185 Camping World stores in the US. 

Now, the customer can browse Camping World’s products on Instacart and have them delivered to their door. The company will also use Instacart’s ‘Big & Bulky’ solution for customers to receive same-day delivery of large items weighing up to 60 pounds, such as camping tables, tents, and smart TVs.

Instacart is the leading grocery technology company in North America. The company partners with more than 1,400 national, regional, and local retail banners to facilitate online shopping, delivery, and pickup services from more than 80,000 stores across North America on the Instacart Marketplace.

Swift delivery solutions

Camping World director Emily Causseaux says the partnership will reshape how customers shop for camping supplies. “In today’s digital age, online shopping is the norm, and customers are increasingly seeking swift delivery solutions,” she says. 

Instacart’s senior director for retail partnerships, Blake Wallace, welcomes the initiative, saying it will allow Camping World customers to receive items quickly. “Whether stocking up for a trip or grabbing last-minute essentials, we’re committed to bringing the great outdoors to customers’ doorsteps in as fast as an hour,” he says.

Access to fresh groceries

In October, Instacart announced a partnership with Mount Sinai Solutions, an integrated healthcare system providing medical care to local and global communities. The collaboration of Mount Sinai and Instacart is designed to alleviate challenges to accessing fresh groceries, pantry staples, and household essentials following a major life event, such as a joint replacement, birth, or bariatric surgery.

Earlier this year, Instacart launched four new Instacart Platform technologies designed to help grocers offer more seamless, connected experiences to customers. The new offerings include online and in-store solutions that help retailers capture new ad revenue, bring more of their store online, better support store associates, and seamlessly offer end-to-end fulfillment. 

These new capabilities are already being used by wholesalers like Associated Food Stores and retailers, including New Seasons Market, Niemann Foods, The Fresh Market, and Uncle Giuseppe’s Marketplace.

Same-day delivery market

Mordor Intelligence reports that with the same-day delivery option, it is expected that the e-commerce market in the area will open up new opportunities. “With the growing e-commerce market, consumer expectations concerning additional facilities, like single-day delivery and bundled products, are also increasing. Therefore, there is a significant demand for regular same-day delivery service from the clothing and consumer electronic goods sectors,” reads the report.
