DoorDash and Loblaw have announced a collaboration that will bring a new grocery delivery service to customers in Canada.
Starting this August, PC Express™ Rapid Delivery will make grocery and convenience items available to customers in an expected express delivery time of 30-minutes-or-less.
Kicking off in major cities across the country, including Vancouver, the express rapid delivery offering will include grocery and convenience items supplied by Loblaw.
“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,” said Lauren Steinberg, SVP 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.”
Customers can shop for grocery and convenience items to be delivered through express rapid delivery by visiting the DoorDash Marketplace app and selecting “PC Express™” Rapid Delivery, or via PCExpress.ca.
“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.”
Additionally, starting in July, customers will be able to order on the DoorDash Marketplace app from their favourite Loblaw Companies retail stores, including Loblaws, Real Canadian Superstore, Atlantic Superstore, and Shoppers Drug Mart.
DoorDash will also power same-day delivery for grocery and convenience items from all Loblaw banner stores on Loblaw’s own pcexpress.ca through DoorDash Drive, DoorDash’s fulfilment platform that powers direct delivery to customers for any business.
