Starting today, Sprouts shoppers from Los Angeles to Fresno can schedule convenient curbside pickup at 25 stores. Customers can shop among more than 12,000 fresh, natural and organic products at sprouts.com/order to be picked up at participating Sprouts stores.

The service, in partnership with Instacart, allows customers to plan grocery pick up for the same day or to schedule several days in advance, subject to availability. Customers are alerted when their order is prepared by a Sprouts team member and ready for pickup. Their personal Sprouts shopper will bring the groceries to a designated pickup parking spot when the customer arrives and checks in.

This grocery pickup service is in addition to local grocery delivery by Instacart to select zip codes, expanding access to the healthy products that shoppers trust Sprouts to provide.
