Wakefern Banners Join DoorDash Marketplace

Wakefern DoorDash

Wakefern Food Corp. has joined DoorDash’s marketplace platform, which offers delivery for groceries and daily essentials.

The cooperative members own and operate 365 supermarkets under the ShopRite, Price Rite Marketplace, The Fresh Grocer, Fairway Market, Gourmet Garage and Dearborn Market banners.

Through May 12, shoppers can enjoy 40 percent off their orders of at least $50, excluding taxes and fees at all participating locations using promo code “FOOD40.”

In addition, all participating Wakefern supermarket banner locations will be available on DashPass, DoorDash’s membership program that features no delivery fee, reduced service fees and member-only benefits on eligible orders.

“DoorDash strives to be a modern-day one-stop-shop that offers an efficient way to get everything needed for tomorrow’s breakfast, this weekend’s dinner party or today’s missing lunch,” said Tom Pickett, the company’s chief revenue officer. 

“Wakefern is one of our most exciting grocery partnerships to date as it not only brings increased selection to DoorDash Marketplace, but gives time back to a variety of shoppers – from those looking for budget friendly value options to specialty shoppers looking for hard to find high-quality foods.”

Wakefern’s family of banners will add about 120,000 new grocery items available for delivery via DoorDash.

“In addition to our own in-house full-service grocery fulfillment offering, DoorDash joins our digital portfolio, providing consumers yet another way to shop Wakefern banners,” said Wakefern President Mike Stigers.

“By joining forces with DoorDash, which offers on-demand, fast-delivery of grocery staples and household essentials, we can make grocery shopping even more convenient for our shoppers.”

DoorDash launched on-demand grocery delivery in 2020. Today, it has more than 150,000 non-restaurant stores across its marketplaces and platform services globally.
