Grocery delivery service Instacart said Thursday that it will launch next week in the Tulsa metro area, giving customers the chance to order groceries and have them delivered.

In a news release, the San Francisco-based company said it would start offering its delivery service locally on July 27, and customers could order from stores such as Whole Foods, Petco, Costco Wholesale, Natural Grocers and Reasor's.

Haven’t there been other services which have come and gone before this?

This is the company that claims the prices are same as in-store, but that has been proven to be a lie:
https://np.reddit.com/r/boston/comments/5xj47l/ever_what_instacart_is_really_charging_you_in/
They also charge a service fee and claim it to be about 15-20% but really it comes out to at least 40% more and in many cases 50-60% more (you are expected to tip).

This kind of a service is good for those who absolutely cannot go get them, but is not as good of a deal as it makes it out to be and you don't end up saving THAT much time, especially if you live within a few miles of a grocery store. You still have to pick out every little thing and miss out on choosing which veggies are to your preference or what sale items you would see. All in all a very bad deal but maybe good for the illogically lazy or rich.
