Several Loblaw grocery stores and pharmacies located in Montreal and in the suburbs of the metropolis now offer a delivery service through the DoorDash app.
Montreal consumers can now purchase groceries and everyday consumer goods at select participating Maxi, Provigo and Pharmaprix stores through the app. The new service should allow each delivery to be made in 30 minutes or less.
In a press release, the American company DoorDash, which is present in 27 countries around the world, made no secret its ambition.
“Our goal is to be the primary source for all consumer grocery and convenience needs across the country, and [this announcement] represents an important milestone that reinforces our commitment towards this goal,” said DoorDash Canada's General Manager, Shilpa Arora.
“By partnering with Loblaw, we are proud to offer Quebecers access, when it suits them, to thousands of fresh groceries and essentials,” she added.
For its part, Loblaw felt the need to offer a new option to consumers.
< p>“Customers expect us to give them the best online grocery shopping experience, whether they choose pick-up service in-store or home delivery,” said Lauren Steinberg of Loblaw’s digital service.
Loblaw said the service will soon be available in other stores across Quebec. This novelty is also available in other Canadian cities such as Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary and Kitchener.
