Loblaw Partners With DoorDash; Lauren Steinberg and Shilpa Arora Comment
TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA - Another industry partnership is on the rise, as Loblaw recently partnered with DoorDash to extend its grocery delivery service capabilities.
“Customers have come to expect the very best online grocery shopping experience from us, whether they choose curb-side pickup or delivery to their door,” commented Lauren Steinberg, Senior Vice President of Loblaw Digital. “Collaborating with DoorDash on rapid delivery services enables us to enhance our already existing PC Express™ offering by adding 30-minutes-or-less delivery to meet customers’ growing interest in on-demand delivery options.”
The PC Express Rapid Delivery will make grocery and convenience items available to customers beginning this August.
“Our goal is to bring convenience to customers in Canada, with the selection and speed they want,” said Shilpa Arora, General Manager, DoorDash Canada. “Through this collaboration with Loblaw, we are addressing consumers’ need to ‘get it now,’ in addition to our existing Marketplace and Drive channels and furthering the value we bring to consumers and partners alike.”
This rapid delivery service will kick off in major Canadian cities such as Vancouver, the Greater Toronto Area, Calgary, and Kitchener, a release explained.
DoorDash will also power same-day delivery for grocery and convenience items from all Loblaw banner stores on the retailer’s own pcexpress.ca through DoorDash Drive.
