SAN FRANCISCO, CA - We are witnessing the success of a formidable alliance with Albertsons Companies’ latest announcement. The grocer has expanded its alliance with Uber Technologies, bringing nearly 800 new locations to Uber Eats’ innovative platform, including stores in Connecticut, Indiana, New Hampshire, Utah, Vermont, and Rhode Island for the very first time. With this expanded partnership, the convenient service is offered at more than 2,000 of the chain’s banner stores nationwide, including Albertsons, Safeway, Jewel-Osco, ACME, Tom Thumb, Randalls, and more.

Amber Kappa, Vice President of Business Development and Innovation, Digital, Albertsons Companies“Our growing partnership with Uber Eats brings new convenience to shopping our stores,” said Amber Kappa, Vice President of Business Development and Innovation, Digital at Albertsons. “Our goal is to make it easier for people to get their groceries, so they can focus on the goodness of sharing a meal.”

The evolution of this alliance makes Albertsons’ banner stores more accessible than ever, with its stores being found within Uber Eats’ grocery category. Now, shoppers can also order their favorite items for delivery through ‘express’ lanes within the convenience section of the app, according to a press release. Local banner loyalty program members, including Albertsons for U™ and Safeway for U™, can link their accounts in the Uber Eats app to earn loyalty points on purchases.
