Customers Can Now Get Same-Day, On-Demand Delivery of Pet Essentials from PetSmart, Powered by DoorDash Drive
BURLINGTON, ON, Oct. 15, 2020 /CNW/ — PetSmart, the leading pet specialty retailer in Canada, is making it even easier and faster for your best fur-friend to get their favorite items. Starting October 15th, 2020, PetSmart Canada will offer on-demand, same-day delivery service powered exclusively through DoorDash, the leading last-mile logistics platform in the United States.
Through PetSmart’s partnership with DoorDash Drive—the company’s fulfillment platform that powers direct delivery for any business— shoppers can place their orders for same-day delivery on PetSmart.ca or via the PetSmart mobile app. These new options give pet parents even more convenient ways to stock up on their favourite essentials. PetSmart delivery will be contactless, enabling the Dasher to leave the order in a safe, secure location designated by the customer.
“We’re here to provide Canadian pet parents with the essential products they need, so they can shop with us safely, securely and in a way that fits their lifestyle,” Alan Blundell, President of PetSmart Canada said. “We’re excited to partner with DoorDash to provide Canadians with another great option that makes the PetSmart shopping experience even more convenient and accessible.”
“The pandemic has pulled the future forward for retail, where changes that once might have taken three years have instead happened in three months,” Casey North, Vice President of DoorDash Drive said. “We’re thrilled to partner with PetSmart Canada, marking our entry into the Canadian pet retail space, to power their store-to-door delivery experience and provide pet owners with the pet essentials they need on demand.”
In addition to offering customers a wide selection of in-store products and unique pet services like training, pet grooming, boarding, and in-store pet adoptions, PetSmart Canada also offers thousands of products online. From pet food, toys and treats to Halloween costumes, habitats and supplements, pet parents can find everything they need for the lifetime care of their pets on petsmart.ca.
