Retailers and delivery companies are forming new partnerships as the rapid delivery market heats up. Albertsons will work with DoorDash to offer 30-minute delivery in more than 20 cities, while Grubhub will expand the Grubhub Goods branded convenience concept nationwide in collaboration with 7-Eleven.
Shoppers in cities including Los Angeles, Denver and Seattle can now choose 30-minute delivery for more than 6,000 items from Albertsons banners including Safeway, Vons, ACME Markets, Jewel-Osco, and Tom Thumb. DoorDash plans to expand this offering to additional Albertsons banners in the near future. Available products include fresh produce, dairy, eggs, snacks, packaged goods and frozen foods.
Albertsons delivery is available directly through the DoorDash app, and Albertsons loyalty pricing and promotions will be honored on orders made through DoorDash. Shoppers can choose to link their Albertsons loyalty accounts to earn points on their purchases.
“By partnering with DoorDash, Albertsons Cos. is able to offer even faster delivery to go alongside the quality products and great value we provide our customers,” said Stephen Menaquale, SVP of Ecommerce at Albertsons in a statement. “We’re proud of what we’ve built with DoorDash in order to guarantee the perfect mix of convenience, quality and the prices our customers appreciate.”
Grubhub Goods now offers on-demand delivery from more than 3,000 locations nationwide. The service features a selection of 7-Eleven’s most popular convenience items, including energy drinks, ice cream and personal care products.
“We’ve been working with 7-Eleven for years to offer their locations on the Grubhub marketplace, and it was a no-brainer to team up with the convenience leader again and bring their operational expertise and scale to Grubhub Goods,” said Kyle Goings, Director of Growth and New Verticals at Grubhub in a statement. “Together we are making it even easier for diners to order convenience items and satisfy any quick cravings right from the Grubhub app.”
DoorDash offers its own 15-minute delivery service in New York City called DashMart. While the program boasts a shorter delivery window than Grubhub Goods, DashMart has a smaller product selection, at 2,000 items, and has yet to expand outside of the city.
