7-Eleven Offers Delivery In Select Cities

Last updated on June 13th, 2024 at 05:22 pm

7-Eleven has agreed to partner with delivery service Postmates to have sodas, snacks and household staples delivered to customers in a handful of cities. Postmates says it can deliver products to customers in an hour or less.

The deal with 7-Eleven also marks the first official delivery partnership for the convenience store chain. Raja Doddala, VP of omnichannel and ventures for 7-Eleven, explains that delivery services like Postmates were already shopping at its stores on behalf of their customers. Most of 7-Eleven’s household products—prepared food and medicines but not alcohol—will be available within the Postmates app at regular store prices.

Doddala says the retailer’s agreement is not exclusive to Postmates and that 7-Eleven is exploring other deals with on-demand companies.

“We’ve never experimented with delivery before, but people are requesting it, and we are going to explore more ways to work with on-demand companies,” he said.

The partnership already has launched in San Francisco and Oakland, California, and plans to expand to Austin, New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago and Washington, D.C., in the coming months.
