Consumers are continuing to lean into the convenience of online grocery ordering and delivery, and as their appetite for the services grows, so too does the need for retailers to up their suite of offerings. To provide its shoppers with more on-demand options, Lowes Foods has tapped DoorDash in order to up its omnichannel capabilities.
“We’re excited to add DoorDash to Lowes Foods’ suite of convenient, online ordering options in the Carolinas,” said Chad Petersen, Vice President of e-Commerce at Lowes Foods and Alex Lee Retail. “DoorDash customers will have the opportunity to shop from our complete assortment of fresh and center store products, which not only includes national brands, but Lowes Foods’ Brown Bag and private label items. Customers will also be able to order our ‘Lowes Foods Originals’—prepared foods from the Chicken Kitchen, freshly-chopped produce from Pick & Prep, premium Boars Head meats and cheeses from our deli, and even our famous square cakes from The Cakery.”
This new partnership will give Lowes Foods shoppers access to on-demand grocery delivery from over 70 store locations across North and South Carolina, as explained in a press release. Currently, DoorDash offers over 50,000 products including meat, bread, baked goods, and fresh produce, with Lowes Foods offerings now added to the mix.
Consumers will be able to use the DoorDash app and website to get Lowes Foods products delivered directly to their front doors on the same day they are ordered. Additionally, shoppers will be given added convenience through the ability to schedule their delivery at a time slot that works with their daily agenda through the “Schedule Ahead” option.
“We are excited to partner with Lowes Foods to offer consumers across the Carolinas a fast and convenient option to access their favorite grocery products on-demand,” commented Shanna Preveì, the Vice President of Strategic Partnerships and Business Development for DoorDash, on the recent partnership.
Lowes Foods is now available on DashPass, DoorDash’s membership program as well. Through this service, shoppers have a $0 delivery fee on thousands of restaurants, grocery, and convenience stores across the country.
