The benefits of using DoorDash
The grocery delivery functionality of DoorDash makes the already great app that much better, and it will be fairly straightforward for those that have used the app before for things like restaurant orders and fast food deliveries. It makes it even easier to practice social distancing and so is great for those that don’t want to face the stores, but it is also handy for those that struggle to get to the shops for other reasons too.
Some things to bear in mind
There are a few things to bear in mind however, starting with the delivery times. DoorDash does estimate delivery times for you, but during busy periods, and particularly amid the current crisis, these can vary quite a lot. Also, some stores have low stock on popular lines, and so you should be prepared to have replacements in mind should your first choice not be available.
Finally, prices are sometimes higher, but for the convenience of having your groceries brought to your door, we think it is definitely worth it!
What stores can you buy from?
DoorDash already works in partnership with restaurants and fast food locations around the country, but now they are also working with some of the big names in the grocery market too. 7-Eleven is one of the chains involved, and Target and Circle K are also available to buy from. Walmart also recently teamed up with DoorDash, and so there are lots of options to choose from when it comes to buying your daily or weekly essentials.
The convenient layout of the app allows you to instantly check for stores near you under lots of different categories, and so you can quickly see what nearby stores offer DoorDash’s delivery service.
