Save Mart's suite of banners is now on the DoorDash Marketplace.
Save Mart, Lucky and FoodMaxx shoppers in California and Nevada can now opt for grocery delivery in under an hour thanks to The Save Mart Companies’ new partnership with DoorDash. This expands shoppers’ options as the grocer also recently partnered with Uber Eats for on-demand and scheduled delivery.
Participating stores will be available on DashPass, and customers can purchase SNAP-eligible grocery products from all locations using their SNAP/EBT card on DoorDash. Shoppers can also receive up to 30% off delivery orders through Nov. 23.
“We are excited to extend the reach and accessibility of our fresh quality offerings, local favorites, and everyday essentials with DoorDash to strengthen our commitment of providing grocery solutions for busy people and families seeking convenience and value,” said Tamara Pattison, SVP, chief digital officer at The Save Mart Companies.
“DoorDash launched on-demand grocery delivery in 2020, empowering grocers with the tools and technology they need to reach new and loyal customers wherever and however they choose to shop. Today, millions of consumers shop DoorDash’s grocery category each month, and more new consumers to the online grocery industry start with DoorDash than any other platform,” added Fuad Hannon, VP of new verticals at DoorDash. “We couldn’t be more excited about our new partnership with The Save Mart Companies and to add their incredible reach and selection to our Marketplace.”
