The news of Amazon’s much-talked-about deal to acquire Whole Foods last week led to all kinds of questions about what that meant for food delivery.

Instacart, which connects shoppers that gather an order and deliver it to users, was among the companies whose future was immediately a topic. The company quickly clarified its position Friday by issuing a statement saying that Amazon “just declared war on every supermarket and corner store in America.”

On the ground, Instacart answered with more expansion. The company began this week by announcing a new partnership with Wegmans in the Mid-Atlantic. It includes Baltimore-area stores in Owings Mills, Hunt Valley and Columbia.

That’s a further expansion after the company entered the area last year. Instacart will also be available in the northern Virginia and Boston suburbs as part of the expansion.

For Wegmans, it’s a way to offer delivery.

“By partnering with an industry leader like Instacart, we’re able to provide our customers with a seamless shopping experience with the quality and service they’ve come to expect from Wegmans, without leaving their house,” Heather Pawlowski, VP of e-commerce for Wegmans, said in a statement.
