US-based retailer Grocery Outlet has collaborated with online food delivery platform DoorDash to provide an on-demand grocery delivery service.

DoorDash will offer same-day grocery delivery from up to 398 Grocery Outlet stores across the US, including outlets in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Maryland, California and Nevada.

Customers can place orders for groceries and other household products from local Grocery Outlet stores through the DoorDash mobile app or website.

Grocery Outlet CEO Eric Lindberg said: “Our partnership with DoorDash will help save shoppers time and money.

“In addition to bringing more of our great products direct to consumers, our DoorDash partnership will help Grocery Outlet reach more customers with great prices during a time where every penny counts.”

Grocery Outlet stores offer thousands of grocery items, including fresh produce and meat, packaged products and household supplies, at an average of 40-70% less than their retail prices.

The retailer serves nearly 1.5 million customers every week.

DoorDash will also offer additional savings options to members who are registered under its DashPass membership programme.

These will apply to orders worth $35 or more from Grocery Outlet.

DoorDash Business Development vice-president Shanna Prevé said: “DoorDash is committed to providing customers with all the selection they crave at affordable prices, in a way that’s convenient for them and their families.

“As consumers face rising prices, we’re thrilled to partner with Grocery Outlet to provide consumers across the country with a new way to purchase more affordable groceries while maximising their budgets.”

In October last year, Grocery Outlet partnered with online grocery platform Instacart to enter the online grocery market.

Under the pilot programme, Grocery Outlet agreed to offer same-day deliveries from 68 stores in California.

Earlier this year, DoorDash launched a grocery delivery service in Canada in partnership with Canadian retailer Loblaw.
