Uber Technologies (NYSE:UBER) and Grocery Outlet Holding (NASDAQ GS:GO) expanded their on-demand and scheduled delivery partnership across the country.
Grocery Outlet locations in New Jersey, Maryland and Pennsylvania are now online, joining stores in California, Oregon and Washington. The total amount of stores across the country is now 386, including large offerings in major cities like Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, Philadelphia, Seattle, Sacramento, and Portland.
“Consumers are looking for savings and quality more than ever these days, which makes the expansion of our partnership with Grocery Outlet an incredibly exciting priority. Uber Eats’ goal is providing grocery delivery options that work for everyone, no matter your budget. Together with Grocery Outlet we can do just that— delivering customers the brands they like at the Grocery Outlet prices they love, on-demand, right to their door,” said Christian Freese, Uber’s head of grocery and new verticals across the United States and Canada.
Uber is the original ride-share company—helping billions of drunk people get home since it started in 2010. Now the number ranges around 15 billion trips and has since expanded to include food, groceries and more. Grocery Outlet is based in Emeryville, California. It’s a retailer of quality, name-brand consumables and products sold in more than 410 stores in a multitude of states.
Uber brings groceries to your door
Uber launched its grocery category in 2020, which makes sense when the world was under lockdown. Now Uber is meeting demand to get consumers what they want from grocery stores and other merchants.
“By expanding our partnership with Uber, we are able to reach more customers with our assortment of high quality, name brand products at industry leading values. We are excited to extend our treasure hunt experience outside the four walls as we carry out our mission of touching lives for the better and our vision of being the first choice for bargain minded consumers,” said RJ Sheedy, president of Grocery Outlet.
The partnership lets consumers choose from the Grocery Outlet list from the Uber and Uber Eats app, and have them delivered. Uber Eats is offering customers $10 off their next Grocery Outlet order, if it’s $40 or more.
