SAN FRANCISCO—DoorDash launched a new service called DoubleDash that allows customers to add items from nearby stores in one order. There are no additional delivery fees or an order minimum, and the orders will arrive together.
The company writes in a blog post that DoubleDash is another step in its vision to “deliver all the best of your neighborhood right to your doorstep, from restaurants to convenience, grocery, retail, pet supplies … We are now excited to take it one step further by allowing you to shop across multiple stores and categories, all in a single order.”
DoubleDash is currently available with 7-Eleven, Walgreens, Wawa, QuickChek, The Ice Cream Shop and DashMart, a DoorDash store that offers thousands of convenience and grocery items as well as products from the local restaurants.
To use DoubleDash, customers can place a restaurant order on DoorDash and after checkout, look for the DoubleDash option on the map to add items from nearby stores. From the store page they select additional times and add them to the cart for checkout. A DoorDash delivery person receives both orders and delivers them together.
DoorDash is also piloting DoubleDash in select markets with local restaurants where customers have the option of adding complementary items from nearby local restaurants to their initial meal order.
