What grocery options does DoorDash offer?
Since early spring, DoorDash has partnered with a handful of convenience stores and grocery chains across the U.S. and Canada, including 7-Eleven, Circle K, Wawa, and Casey's General Store. Customers will be able to choose from whatever stores are available in their delivery area, but this opens up 1,000s of options to DoorDash's growing clientele. I only have access to 7-Eleven where I live, but I'm happy that it's now available to me!
According to support documents on DoorDash's website, the company appears to be piloting more extensive partnerships with larger grocery chains like Central Market (opens in new tab) in Dallas, and Walmart (opens in new tab) in other parts of the United States. I look forward to seeing these options being rolled out to a broader audience soon, as I happen to live close to both of these grocery stores.
According to another report by trade publication Supermarket News, DoorDash is working with through its white-label logistics program to source delivery for other grocery chains like Piggly Wiggly, Hy-Vee, and others. It will be interesting to see how this business arm develops over the coming year.

If you don't currently have the DoorDash app on your phone, then what are you waiting for? It's one of my absolute favorite delivery apps, and barely a week goes by that my family doesn't use it a time or two.
Note: I also noticed on my Galaxy Note 9 that Samsung is offering additional discounts if you connect Samsung Pay to your DoorDash account and use it as your payment method!
DoorDash was already one of our favorite delivery services, but now that they're offering grocery delivery, we love them even more! Options vary per location, but just having this available will be a game-changer for many customers. Don't forget to sign up for their DashPass service to get delivery fees waved for most restaurants and stores for a low monthly fee!
