Albertsons Companies and Uber Eats are expanding their delivery partnership to include more than 2,000 of the grocer’s banner stores nationwide, including Albertsons, Safeway, Jewel-Osco, and Acme.
The new agreement will make Uber Eats available for customers at nearly 800 new Albertson banner locations for the first time in Rhode Island, Vermont, Connecticut, Indiana, New Hampshire, and Utah. Later this year, consumers can take advantage of Albertsons member pricing and promotions on grocery orders from the grocer’s banners around the country. In addition to stores being found within Uber Eats’ grocery category, consumers can order items for delivery through “express” lanes within the app’s convenience section.
“Our growing partnership with Uber Eats brings new convenience to shopping our stores,” Amber Kappa, VP of business development and innovation, digital at Albertsons said. “Our goal is to make it easier for people to get their groceries, so they can focus on the goodness of sharing a meal.”
“Together with Albertsons, we’re evolving the ways we can get groceries — and so much more — to people’s doorsteps across the country,” said. “Since launching our U.S. grocery category in 2020, we have seen a huge appetite for easy, fast delivery from trusted retailers,” said Oskar Hjertonsson, Uber’s head of its grocery division, “and with this expanded partnership, we’re excited to serve more people with even more choice and convenience on Uber Eats.”
