Wegmans is bringing home delivery to Rochester, and several other cities.

The supermarket chain announced in June that it had a partnership with a company called Instacart, which allowed some Wegmans shoppers in Northern Virginia and Maryland to complete their grocery shopping online.

Now, Wegmans and Instacart, a San Francisco based company, say the home delivery will be available in Rochester, Buffalo and Syracuse in August.

The same-day delivery service will come to Rochester on August 8.  Primarily that will be in Monroe County stores, but you can go to instacart.wegmans.com once the services launches to see if you are within the coverage area.

Instacart waives the delivery fee on new customers’ first orders.

After that, delivery starts at  $5.99 on orders of $35 or more. Instacart Express membership is also available, enabling unlimited free one-hour deliveries on orders over $35 for an annual fee.

After a free trial period, the annual fee varies by location from $99 to $149. In addition, Wegmans adds a price increase to the various items to cover the cost of shopping customer orders.
