Instacart, Whole Foods Part Ways

“Instacart said Thursday that it would cease deliveries from 76 Whole Foods locations on Feb 10. The San Francisco-based company said around 240 employees would be laid off as a result. Most of the 1,415 Instacart employees that pick up orders from Whole Foods stores will be transferred to other divisions, founder and chief executive, Apoorva Mehta, said. Multi-retailer delivery services will continue to include Whole Foods for now but will scale back in coming months.”
