Albertsons and DoorDash are joining forces to provide customers with on-demand grocery delivery from the retailer’s nearly 2,000 well-known banners, including Safeway, Vons and Jewel-Osco. 

Shoppers can order their groceries and other essential items for delivery, with no time slot, queues or minimum order size through the DoorDash app. 

“Consumers' desire to get everything in their neighborhood on-demand has increased dramatically. We are thrilled to partner with Albertsons, one of the largest food and drug retailers in the world, as they expand their already strong local footprint beyond their four walls to offer consumers convenient access to on-demand grocery delivery,” said Fuad Hannon, head of new verticals at DoorDash. “Leveraging our extensive logistics network and Albertsons' wide selection of fresh groceries, we are creating a one-stop shop for customers to access any of the essentials they need, delivered to their doorstep within an hour.”

In addition, those in select markets will be able to order their groceries through the Albertsons store website for same-day delivery powered through DoorDash Drive, DoorDash’s white-label fulfillment platform that powers direct delivery for any business.

“We are committed to expanding our delivery experience in order to meet our customers’ needs whenever, wherever and however they want,” said Chris Rupp, chief customer and digital officer at Albertsons. “Our partnership with DoorDash is the next step in our digital transformation to help make our customers’ lives easier and help answer the perennial question, 'What’s for dinner tonight?'”

To celebrate this collaboration, the companies are also working together on a digital gaming experience that gives users the opportunity to score savings on future grocery orders.

Titled “In The Bag,” the interactive game prompts users to place as many fresh grocery staples as possible into a virtual DoorDash grocery bag before reaching the top and running out of space. The more groceries players fit in their digital bags, the more is saved with promotions per tiered score, the companies said. 

All Albertsons stores will be available on DashPass, DoorDash’s membership program that offers members unlimited $0 delivery fees and reduced service fees from thousands of restaurants, grocery and convenience stores nationwide.
