The Home Depot, Inc. (HD) has been actively pursuing strategic initiatives to enhance the customer experience.

One such initiative is the execution of the “One Home Depot” investment plan, which prioritizes the expansion of supply-chain facilities, investments in technology, and improvements to the digital experience.

This partnership allows consumers to order a wider range of home improvement items through Instacart’s platform, spanning from garden and building supplies to light fixtures, which will be promptly delivered to their doorstep.

By teaming up with Instacart, The Home Depot not only expands its product selection beyond groceries but also enhances its e-commerce capabilities.

Moreover, this collaboration facilitates easier access to essential home improvement products, including household appliances like microwaves, vacuums, cleaning supplies, and gardening tools.

Through existing same-day and next-day delivery options on homedepot.com, bolstered by Instacart’s expedited services, this partnership offers customers greater flexibility.

Rolled out nationwide, the collaboration includes Instacart’s Big & Bulky fulfillment solution, enabling same-day and scheduled deliveries for oversized items weighing up to 60 pounds, such as grills, ladders, and large boxes.

Furthermore, Home Depot remains committed to expanding its business and capturing market share, with a focus on enhancing customer engagement in home improvement projects, particularly smaller ones.

It aims to go through the dynamic and uncertain environment by operating with agility and adapting to evolving consumer trends, while also driving productivity and efficiency across its operations.
