We’re all familiar, and likely spoiled by, quick delivery services. Whether it’s our dinner coming via a food delivery app, or our package from Amazon coming within 12 hours, we want what we want, and we want it NOW. This fashion retailer is taking it a step further, partnering with Uber to offer customers speedy, same-day delivery.
Mall retailers Garage and Dynamite, both of which operate under Groupe Dynamite Inc., have just announced that they’ve launched a partnership with ride-sharing app Uber to give customers same-day delivery across Southern Ontario. The retailer first brought this service to Montreal back in December 2020 and customers seem to be loving it.
“The success of our pilot program in Montreal was a clear indication that we needed to expand this service to other regions,” says Liz Edmiston, President and Chief Executive Officer, Groupe Dynamite Inc. in a release. “Our partnership with Uber is monumental for our company and presents an opportunity for us to find new and innovative ways to connect with our customers nationwide.”
Wondering how it works? Simply place your order on the Garage and Dynamite e-commerce website or app and make sure your order is placed before 3 p.m. ET. The service area includes shipping addresses within a radius of up to 15 km around participating stores across Southern Ontario. Customers who opt for same-day service will receive a link to track their delivery on the Uber Eats website—no app necessary! Delivery costs $10 CAD.
If you don’t live within the delivery area, don’t fret. There are plans to expand the service across Canada.
“As Canada re-opens, we’ve been focused on innovating and building new products to help businesses and users send and receive items easier and faster than before,” said Lola Kassim, GM of Uber’s Canadian Delivery business. “We’re proud to work with Canadian retailer Groupe Dynamite to expand same-day delivery and offer a more seamless delivery experience for Ontario customers.”
