Albertsons Cos. and on-demand delivery platform DoorDash have jointly introduced express grocery delivery, a new service that offers consumers faster and more convenient delivery of fresh groceries in less than 30 minutes. As part of the launch, consumers in more than 20 major cities across the United States, including Los Angeles, Denver and Seattle, will be able to receive express grocery delivery from local Albertsons banners such as Safeway, Vons, Acme Markets, Jewel-Osco and Tom Thumb via the DoorDash marketplace. The offering is set to expand to more Albertsons banners in the coming weeks.
Albertsons Cos. will offer more than 6,000 items for express grocery delivery nationwide, from grocery staples like fresh produce, dairy and eggs, to snacks, packaged goods and frozen foods. DoorDash customers can take advantage of Albertsons loyalty pricing and promotions on express grocery orders where available, and local banner loyalty program members, including Albertsons for U and Safeway for U, can link their account in the DoorDash app to earn loyalty points on purchases.
To order, consumers with express grocery delivery service available in their area can either search for “Rapid Grocery” stores on the DoorDash app or click the Grocery tile on the DoorDash homepage and choose the filter for “Under 30 Min.”Progressive grocer
