Uber Technologies, Inc. is rapidly expanding its delivery service in the U.S. and will increase the number of cities where they offer the service. On Monday, Uber announced that grocery delivery is now available in over 400 locations in the U.S., including major cities like Dallas, San Francisco, New York, and Washington. 

Uber, in a statement, said it has joined forces with Albertsons Cos. to give its customers access to more than 12000 stores, including Jewel-Osco, Safeway, ACME, and Randalls.  

“Uber is uniquely poised to meet consumers’ growing desire to get the things they need from grocery stores and other merchants in an on-demand fashion within hours — if not minutes — rather than days,” the company said in the statement. 

In a bid to attract new customers, Uber will waive delivery fees for customers who spend more than $30. Those customers would also be able to request on-demand and scheduled deliveries. 

Uber launched its grocery-delivery service last summer at the height of the COVID lockdowns. The service has witnessed steady and consistent growth since then. Uber’s global head of grocery and new verticals, Raj Beri, said that around three million consumers order groceries and essentials every month through the delivery service. 

Uber’s push to accelerate its grocery service expansion comes as other companies are vying for positions in the delivery service arena. Companies like Instacart and Walmart are currently dominating the delivery service market.
