UNION, N.J. — Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. said Wednesday that it is partnering with DoorDash to bolster its same-day delivery capabilities.
The move will allow the Bed Bath & Beyond and buybuy BABY websites to expand same-day delivery to more than 3,000 additional zip codes across the country, the retailer said, adding that same day delivery is now available in nearly all store locations.
“We are thrilled to continue strengthening our Same Day Delivery services through this partnership with DoorDash,” said Bed Bath & Beyond executive vice president and chief digital officer Rafeh Masood. “What’s also exciting about this partnership is that we are extending order cutoff times from 1 p.m. to up to 6 p.m. local time based on store hours and customers can receive real-time updates on their order status via text, giving them real-time visibility to when their order will arrive to them. We’re executing on our strategy to being an omni-always retailer to provide customers with the convenience of Buy-Online-Pickup-In-Store, contactless Curbside Pickup, and multiple Same Day Delivery options through existing partnerships with Shipt, Instacart and now DoorDash. We will continue to provide our customers with innovative omnichannel avenues to shop with us.”
Bed Bath & Beyond said the same-day delivery partnership with DoorDash follows a successful launch in Canada last month, which was accelerated in response to pandemic-induced lockdowns in Ontario.
“Amidst the pandemic we accelerated our momentum into new categories to address consumers’ heightened needs for household essentials, allowing them to get the items they needed most delivered on the same day to their doorstep,” said DoorDash chief operating officer Christopher Payne. “We are excited to partner with leading retailer Bed Bath & Beyond to expand their reach and offer their vast selection of products to more customers in more markets across the U.S. with the ease and convenience of store-to-door delivery powered by DoorDash Drive.”
