“We know this service is something our customers are interested in, and we’re excited to learn more as we move forward with this pilot,” said Kevin Murphy, Publix Senior Vice President of Retail Operations. “We chose Instacart because we believe the experience they provide aligns well with the needs of our company, associates and customers.”

Publix has tested other online shopping and delivery services over the years.

In 2010, the grocer announced its short-lived Curbside service, which allowed customers in select areas to order groceries online and choose a pickup location and time. Employees walked the groceries to shoppers’ cars.

Publix abandoned anther online ordering and delivery service, called Publix Direct, in 2003.
