Wegmans Food Markets is jumping into the on-demand delivery game.

Through a new partnership with Instacart, the regional grocer now offers one-hour grocery deliveries. The service is currently available in select locations in Virginia, however, the supermarket chain is preparing to launch the program in Maryland, Boston, Southern New Jersey, and Southeastern Pennsylvania, according to Wegmans.

Here’s how it works: Wegmans shoppers order groceries through a special page on the retailer’s website via their desktop, laptop or mobile device. They can also use the Instacart app. Shoppers can also add their loyalty card to the account to accrue rewards points.

Shoppers pay for orders online, and schedule their delivery window. Deliveries can arrive in as little as one hour, according to Wegmans.

Orders of more than $35 come have a $5.99 delivery fee; orders under that threshold are subject to a higher delivery fee. Wegmans is also charging more per product through the delivery service than it does in stores, according to ReCode.

Wegmans has 92 stores in New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia, Maryland, and Massachusetts.
