Albertsons and Uber are expanding their partnership to include more than 2,000 of the grocer’s banner stores nationwide, including Albertsons, Safeway, Jewel-Osco, ACME, Tom Thumb, Randalls and more through Uber Eats.
This expansion brings nearly 800 new locations to Uber Eats, including to consumers in Connecticut, Indiana, New Hampshire, Utah, Vermont and Rhode Island for the very first time.
In addition to stores being found within Uber Eats’ grocery category, consumers can order their favorite items for delivery through “express” lanes within the convenience section of the app. Uber One members benefit from $0 delivery fee on all convenience orders from Albertsons' “express” stores with $15 minimum purchase.
“Our growing partnership with Uber Eats brings new convenience to shopping our stores,” said Amber Kappa, vice president of business development and innovation, digital at Albertsons. “Our goal is to make it easier for people to get their groceries, so they can focus on the goodness of sharing a meal."
“Together with Albertsons, we’re evolving the ways we can get groceries — and so much more — to people’s doorsteps across the country,” said Oskar Hjertonsson, head of grocery at Uber. "Since launching our U.S. grocery category in 2020, we have seen a huge appetite for easy, fast delivery from trusted retailers, and with this expanded partnership, we’re excited to serve more people with even more choice and convenience on Uber Eats.”

Later this year, consumers can take advantage of Albertsons’ member pricing and promotions on Albertsons grocery orders where available, the company said. Local banner loyalty program members, including Albertsons for U and Safeway for U, can link their account in the Uber Eats app to earn loyalty points on purchases.
