If you order from Instacart to get home delivery/shopping assistance from Wegmans, be aware that the items you purchase are marked up by Instacart.  So not only do you pay a service charge, delivery charge and tip but you are also paying a premium for the items you order.  I did not realize this until a recent order I had delivered and the cash register receipt was in one of the bags.  When comparing the actual receipt the shopper got vs what I was charged by Instacart I paid an additional $7 on my order of only 14 items.  I understand the delivery charge/service charge and tip for this service, but to charge a premium on the items on the list (mostly food) seems to be a disservice...especially to seniors on a limited income.  Just my opinion!
