DoorDash who started delivering for wide range of convince stores earlier this year, announced customers can now order groceries through the DoorDash app from partners Meijer, Fresh Thyme, and Smart & Final. More stores like Hy-Vee and Gristedes/D'Agnostino will be added in the next couple of weeks.
"Grocery stores on DoorDash will be available on an on-demand basis," Mike Goldblatt, the company's head of grocery and convenience partnerships wrote in a blog post Thursday. "That means no scheduling required, no queues, no waiting." There will be a $3.99 delivery fee for each grocery order, unless users are part of DoorDash's subscription service, DashPass, which costs $9.99 per month and includes grocery.
DoorDash is promising that customers will get their groceries within the hour, which could give them an edge over the competition.
