Instacart, a service that aims to deliver groceries from the store to your door within an hour, launched in DC today.
The San Francisco-based site and app is starting with deliveries from Harris Teeter, and joins insta-apps like Washio that are reeling in big start-up money with hopes of revolutionizing life’s more tedious errands.
But, as DCist pointed out, grocery-lacking Wards 7 and 8 aren’t currently not in the site’s service area.
“This is only our initial launch coverage area,” the company’s head of expansion, Aditya Shah, told DCist. “We will expand into new neighborhoods in the weeks to come. We tend to look at requests from customers in specific zip codes when evaluating the expansion.”
