Instacart is expanding into Lehigh Valley, and it's looking to on-board over 100 new shoppers, those who deliver items to customers' doors in one hour.
The on-demand delivery service is also expanding its partnership with Wegmans to more stores in the Philadelphia region and South Jersey.

Instacart in August 2016 then expanded into South Jersey.
