Shoppers in Canada will soon have speedier access to their favorite Loblaw private label products. The retailer and DoorDash have announced a new 30-minutes-or-less delivery service that will become available in August.

PC Express Rapid Delivery, a nod to the retailer’s President’s Choice label, will kick off in major cities across Canada, including Vancouver, the Greater Toronto Area, Calgary and Kitchener.

"Customers have come to expect the very best online grocery shopping experience from us, whether they choose curb-side pickup or delivery to their door," said Lauren Steinberg, SVP Loblaw Digital. "Collaborating with DoorDash on rapid delivery services enables us to enhance our already existing PC Express offering by adding 30-minutes-or-less delivery to meet customers' growing interest in on-demand delivery options."

Customers can shop for grocery and convenience items to be delivered through express rapid delivery by visiting the DoorDash Marketplace app and selecting "PC Express" Rapid Delivery, or via PCExpress.ca. Starting in July, customers will be able to order on the DoorDash Marketplace app from their favorite Loblaw Companies retail stores, including Loblaws, Real Canadian Superstore, Atlantic Superstore, Provigo, Maxi, Shoppers Drug Mart and Pharmaprix.

“Our goal is to bring convenience to customers in Canada, with the selection and speed they want," said Shilpa Arora, general manager, DoorDash Canada. "Through this collaboration with Loblaw, we are addressing consumers' need to "get it now," in addition to our existing Marketplace and Drive channels and furthering the value we bring to consumers and partners alike."

Loblaw Companies Unlimited operates more than 2,400 corporate, franchised and associate-owned stores across Canada.
