Midwest-based retailer Hy-Vee announced on Tuesday that it is partnering with a pair of national online delivery services — Shipt and Intacart — to expand its delivery footprint and provide new and convenient shopping options to Hy-Vee customers in more than two dozen markets.

"Hy-Vee is excited to provide customers even more same-day delivery options by partnering with these national services," says Matt Ludwig, Hy-Vee's chief information officer and executive vice-president of e-commerce. "As online grocery marketplaces experience rapid growth, Hy-Vee is matching pace to provide our customers a variety of personalized grocer delivery options."

Hy-Vee will continue its Aisles Online service, with Instacart and Shipt offering expanded delivery areas and same-day delivery. Customers can note their grocery preferences, choose a delivery window and pay for orders on the Shipt or Instacart mobile apps or websites.
