Independent supermarket network IGA has partnered with DoorDash to provide a groceries-on-demand service from more than 100 stores.
The service, which promises delivery within as little as 45 minutes, will see more than 1600 products listed on DoorDash app, three times the number offered by rival delivery apps.
IGA is the first supermarket group in Australia to partner with DoorDash to offer on-demand grocery delivery services. The service is available in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, Cairns, Toowoomba, Gold Coast, Wollongong, Rockhampton, Townsville, Albury and Bathurst. The company said it aims to expand the service to more locations soon.
“Reaching more than 75 per cent of Australians across the country, DoorDash is in a great position to support IGA’s network of stores nationwide and provide customers with convenient, reliable and cashless store-to-door deliveries,” said Chase Gardner, head of enterprise partnerships in Australia.
The partnership is also part of DoorDash’s expansion plan to other sectors other than solely restaurants, including grocery, convenience, retail and pet supplies.
