Grocery Outlet partners with Uber for on-demand grocery delivery
Uber Technologies Inc. and Grocery Outlet Holding Corp. are teaming up to pilot on-demand and scheduled grocery delivery.
Starting this week, 72 Grocery Outlet stores across California, Oregon, and Washington — including in Portland, Seattle, San Francisco, San Jose, Sacramento, Palo Alto and Sunnyvale — are available to shop through Uber and Uber Eats.
With this partnership customers will be able to get their Grocery Outlet must-haves delivered on-demand, right to their door.
“We are excited about the long-term potential of our eCommerce initiative at Grocery Outlet and this new partnership with Uber,” said RJ Sheedy, president of Grocery Outlet. “We think it’s important to make our great-value products available across another platform and to a greater audience, introducing Grocery Outlet to customers who may not have shopped with us before.”
“Our goal is to provide a reliable and affordable grocery delivery option that works for everyone, no matter your budget,” said Oskar Hjertonsson, head of gocery at Uber. “We see our partnership with Grocery Outlet as an opportunity to do just that by delivering customers the brands they like at the Grocery Outlet prices they love, on-demand, right to their door.
Since launching in July 2020, Uber has seen consistent growth in the U.S. for its grocery category.
