Right on the heels of its plans to deliver groceries, DoorDash now wants to handle your full grocery stores as well. But the company believes it can do better than other competitors and promises to deliver your food in as little as an hour.
To begin with, Doordash will work with Smart & Final, Meijer and Fresh Thyme and plans to add Hy-vee and Gristedes / D̵7;Agnostino in the coming weeks. Doordash says it can already deliver to 75 million Americans from Los Angeles to Cincinnati.
If you have a DoorDash Pass, the subscription that waves delivery charges, you will also benefit from the new service, as it now includes the delivery of grocery stores. DoorDash promises “no scheduling, no delivery locations, no day-long waits” by embedding shoppers in its partner stores. They pick up the goods you order and hand them over to a Dasher to deliver.
All Dasher that deliver for restaurants now can choose to pick up groceries, but it is optional. To convince you to try the new service, DoorDash is offering new and existing DashPass subscribers $ 15 for their next food order.
