DFW Costco stores now delivering same-day through Uber
Uber and Costco announced today that they will deliver groceries from 25 DFW Costco stores using Uber via Uber and Uber Eats mobile apps. The minimum order amount is $35 and delivery is free for Uber Pass and Eats Pass holders. Customers do not have to be Costco members to shop Costco this way.
Though the service launched today, we were unable to find a way to order Costco items using Costco.com, the Costco app, Uber.com or any of the Uber apps.
“One thing we know to be true i that people across the United States are looking for convenient and affordable ways to stock their pantries without leaving home—especially for last-minute must-have items,” said Raj Beri, Uber’s Head of Grocery Delivery, in a press release announcing the program. “Today’s announcement with Costco is an important step towards marrying the magic of wholesale retail with on-demand delivery in the palm of your hand, and I’m thrilled that Texans are getting a first look at what’s to come.”
Costco currently offers online ordering and delivery through its own channels and additional third parties.
“Our mission statement at Costco is to take care of our members. By finding solutions to deliver merchandise quickly and efficiently, we continue to offer our members value, convenience and member service,” said Ron Vachris, Costco Executive Vice President, Merchandising.
