Bringing together last-mile expertise with Canada’s largest retail network, Loblaw Companies Ltd and DoorDash, Inc. are making on-demand grocery delivery easier for Canadians. In addition to Loblaw’s own PC Express app, customers can now place grocery delivery orders on the DoorDash Marketplace app, directly from more than 1,100 Loblaw banner stores, including Loblaws, Shoppers Drug Mart, Real Canadian Superstore, Atlantic Superstore®, Provigo® and Maxi & Cie. Through this collaboration, DoorDash will also power same-day delivery through DoorDash Drive, DoorDash’s fulfillment platform that powers direct delivery to customers for any business.
“Online grocery has changed. It is not a one-size fits all solution. Customers are looking for varying levels of convenience – orders within minutes, shopping from favorite apps and a seamless experience,” said Galen G. Weston, President and Chairman, Loblaw Companies Ltd. “DoorDash brings best-in-class logistics expertise and operational excellence to our extensive relationship, which makes them the ideal strategic partner for us to address our evolving needs as we look to get consumers exactly what they want when they want it.”
“At DoorDash, our goal is to be the go-to partner for grocers, connecting them with consumers for the best online grocery experience. Our collaboration with Loblaw brings fourteen different banner stores on to the DoorDash Marketplace app for on-demand delivery, to nearly three quarters of consumers across Canada and reinforces our commitment to that goal. We are excited to collaborate with the largest retailer in Canada and look forward to deepening the relationship,” said Tony Xu, Co-founder and CEO, DoorDash.
Customers looking for convenience, speed and ease, can now order groceries and essentials on-demand for delivery through the DoorDash Marketplace app, with no time slot or queues. Loblaw will offer more than 50,000 grocery and convenience items from its stores for delivery via DoorDash, including fresh and prepared food, grocery, floral, drugstore essentials and convenience items. Whether shopping for a week’s worth of groceries, including dairy products, eggs, bread, local produce, fresh meat and seafood or ordering cooked meals on a busy day, consumers can shop right on the DoorDash Marketplace app to fulfill their grocery needs with ease.
To celebrate this collaboration, from now until Oct. 23, 2022, customers can enjoy $10 off their orders of $40 or more from Loblaw banner stores on the DoorDash Marketplace app.
All Loblaws, Shoppers Drug Mart, Real Canadian Superstore, Atlantic Superstore, Provigo and Maxi & Cie banner store products will be available to DashPass members for unlimited $0 delivery fees and reduced service fees on eligible orders that meet minimum subtotal.
DoorDash works with many local and national household names across industries including convenience, grocery, pets, retail and pharmacy delivery. Today’s launch builds upon DoorDash’s expansion into new categories beyond food, connecting consumers with the best of their neighborhood, across food and convenience at the touch of a button.
