Grocery delivery could help shut-ins, sick, or busy East Texans

EAST TEXAS (KLTV) - Dianne Terry and her husband George have shopped at Brookshire's for years. But for them, grocery shopping isn't the easiest task.

"Especially since I can't drive, or I have to rely on my husband, or para-transit to get anywhere," she said.

Dianne lost her leg due to complications with diabetes and now she relies on her wheelchair. Her husband, George, works at night, leaving the couple with little time to grocery shop.

"He comes home and he sleeps during the day usually and sometimes it is hard for us getting to the store with his schedule and everything," she said.

Senior Vice President Division Manager for Brookshire's, Brian Johnson, said customers like Dianne and George will benefit from their new partnership with Instacart.

Starting Thursday, shoppers can have groceries delivered straight to their door.  Johnson said over the years customers have expressed a need for this service.

"You know really time-starved customers and customers who are maybe physically unable to get out of their homes to buy their groceries," he said.

Customers can download the Instacart app and order a variety of groceries, giving people an easier way to get the items they need.

"You know, I can't just jump in the car and go to the store for things, and so this will be real convenient." she said.

An Instacart personal shopper will fill your request and deliver the groceries the same day you order.
