Grocery Outlet Expands Partnership With Uber; RJ Sheedy and Christian Freese Comment
SAN FRANCISCO, CA - Have you, dear reader, ever ordered grocery delivery? It is an experience I highly recommend at least every once in a while. The service continues to rise in demand for shoppers across the country, and Grocery Outlet is working to meet that demand. The retailer recently announced that it is expanding its partnership with Uber, bringing on-demand and scheduled delivery to several additional cities.
"By expanding our partnership with Uber, we are able to reach more customers with our assortment of high-quality, name brand products at industry leading values. We are excited to extend our treasure hunt experience outside the four walls as we carry out our mission of touching lives for the better and our vision of being the first choice for bargain-minded consumers," said RJ Sheedy, President of Grocery Outlet.
Grocery Outlet locations across New Jersey, Maryland, and Pennsylvania, will join storefronts in California, Oregon, and Washington, in offering this service. This brings its number of stores offering delivery to 386 across the country.
This expanded partnership brings consumers their favorite Grocery Outlet must-haves from the Uber and Uber Eats apps, delivered on-demand, right to their door, a press release explained.
"Consumers are looking for savings and quality more than ever these days, which makes the expansion of our partnership with Grocery Outlet an incredibly exciting priority," said Christian Freese, Uber's Head of Grocery and New Verticals across the United States and Canada. "Uber Eats' goal is providing grocery delivery options that work for everyone, no matter your budget. Together with Grocery Outlet we can do just that—delivering customers the brands they like at the Grocery Outlet prices they love, on-demand, right to their door."
