Staples has partnered with Uber Eats to make school and office supplies available for scheduled or on-demand delivery from its stores across the country. Members of the Uber One loyalty program will benefit from $0 delivery fees and up to 10% off Staples orders of $15 or more at selected stores.
“Back to school and back to the office can make September one of the busiest months of the year, and Staples has the solution to so many household challenges,” said Christian Freese, Head of Grocery and New Verticals in the U.S. and Canada at Uber in a statement. “Whether it’s a printer paper emergency or a science fair project tri-fold, together with Staples we’ll help people get (almost) anything they need — anytime they need it — delivered to their doorstep.”
Staples has been expanding its integrations with other retailers and service providers in recent months. The retailer agreed to let its stores function as return centers for Amazon in June 2023 and partnered with DoorDash for deliveries in August 2023.
“Increasing on-demand delivery of our wide assortment of home office, business and classroom products means we can be a more convenient and reliable solution — wherever you are working or learning,” said Marshall Warkentin, Chief Marketing and Merchandising Officer at Staples U.S. Retail in a statement.
