The following is a press release from Quality Food Center:

Enumclaw’s QFC shoppers now have access to home delivery, eliminating the need for a trip to the store.

Delivery service began Sept. 20 through a partnership with Instacart, an on-demand retail delivery service.

“We are listening to our customers who are telling us they want the convenience of shopping any way they choose,” said Suzy Monford, president of QFC. She noted that groceries can be delivered to a customer’s doorsteps as soon as two hours after they place an order.

How does the system work?

Customers place their orders through the “Delivery” link at www.qfc.com. The customer enters the ZIP code where the delivery will be scheduled then chooses from 40,000 offered products, including perishables, which are categorized and sorted. The customer builds a digital cart by clicking and adding products. Once the customer has completed building the online basket, a preferred delivery time between 9 a.m. and midnight can be selected. An Instacart shopper then hand-picks the items and delivers the order within a preferred one-hour time window.

There is a fee for home delivery that will be waived for first-time customers.
