SIOUX CITY -- The nation’s largest on-demand grocery delivery service will begin carting groceries and other items from metro Sioux City stores to local residents starting next week.

Instacart will begin offering same-day delivery service to more than 37,000 local households on Wednesday. In a news release Thursday, Instacart listed Hy-Vee, Sam’s Club and Petco as among the stores in Sioux City that will be using its services.

About 100 local shoppers will be hired to fill online orders and deliver to homes. 

"Over the past year we’ve seen incredible demand in the Sioux City area,” Sapna Mitchell, senior operations manager at Instacart, said in the news release. “We work with a variety of local retailers to provide the freshest, highest quality groceries to our customers."

The local delivery area includes 13 zip codes, which include the Iowa cities of Sioux City, Bronson, Hinton, Lawton, Luton, Salix and Sergeant Bluff, according to the news release.

To order, customers start by visiting the company's website -- instacart.com -- or opening the mobile app. After entering their location, customers choose the items they want to buy and select a delivery window. A local Instacart shopper then fills the order and delivers.

It will not deliver alcohol or tobacco products.

Instacart charges a fee of $5.99 for orders of $35 or more, although users can sign up for an annual membership for $149 that provides free unlimited delivery of orders of at least $35.

As part of its local rollout, Instacart is offering first-time delivery free as well as $20 off the first order of $35 or more until Oct. 15. Customers just need to enter the code HISIOUXCITY  at checkout.
