BJ’s Wholesale Club has partnered with DoorDash to offer on-demand grocery delivery from 226 locations across 17 states. Although both members and non-members can now use the DoorDash app to purchase BJ’s products, members receive lower pricing on all items.
Products available for on-demand delivery include deli meat, dairy and other grocery staples. In addition to BJ’s now being available on DoorDash’s grocery marketplace, the wholesale retailer also will be able to power same-day delivery from its ecommerce site via DoorDash Drive, DoorDash’s white-label fulfillment platform.
“BJ’s is proud to bring the convenience and value our members know and love to even more shoppers through the DoorDash marketplace,” said Monica Schwartz, EVP and Chief Digital Officer at BJ’s Wholesale Club in a statement. “We are excited to expand easy shopping solutions for our members, while also bringing BJ’s wide assortment and exclusive products to new potential members.”
Same-day delivery is a hot market attracting attention from multiple competitors, and it’s easy to see why. By 2027, the global last mile delivery market is expected to reach more than $200 billion, nearly double what it was in 2020. Partnerships with retailers like DoorDash, Uber and Instacart can give an edge on convenience particularly as instant delivery providers like JOKR and Gopuff grow in popularity.
This may be why DoorDash has launched multiple partnerships with convenience and grocery retailers as the platform builds out its same-day and on-demand capabilities. Recent launches include:
- Teaming up with Albertsons to offer 30-minute delivery for 6,000+ items from banners including Safeway, Vons, ACME Markets, Jewel-Osco and Tom Thumb;
- Partnering with Dollar General to provide same-day delivery from more than 10,000 locations; and
- A solo venture in New York City powered by DoorDash’s own convenience network, DashMart, to offer consumers 15-minute delivery of common grocery items.
