US grocery delivery company Instacart has acquired Rosie, an independent retailer and wholesale e-commerce platform. The move deepens Instacart’s commitment to serving local and independent grocers.
Rosie has relationships with independent retailers across 40 states. It offers grocers affordable and easy-to-use branded e-commerce websites and mobile app capabilities.
Instacart’s move allows it to introduce new e-commerce solutions that are built for local and independent retailers that complement its existing Instacart Platform offerings.
“Our focus is on creating technology solutions that are tailor-made to meet the online and in-store needs of all grocers – whether they’re national chains or independently-owned and operated,” said Chris Rogers, Chief Business Officer at Instacart. “Local and independent grocers are so important to the grocery ecosystem. They have loyal customers, create meaningful job opportunities and serve as cornerstones of their communities. The Rosie team understands these grocers better than anyone, and that’s why we’re proud to welcome them to Instacart. Together, we’ll build more technologies that help independent grocers accelerate their pace of innovation so they can continue to compete, grow, and serve their customers however they choose to shop.”
