Press release: PetSmart
Uber Technologies has announced a new nationwide partnership with PetSmart, bringing its selection to the Uber Eats app, furthering its mission to help consumers get “anything” (Not literally anything. Item availability varies by market) they need, delivered on-demand.
More than 1,600 PetSmart locations across the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico are now available for pet parents to shop with Uber Eats
PetSmart is offering everything from pet foods to accessories, habitats and healthcare products via the Uber Eats platform to support pet parents across North America, whether their best friend is a dog, cat, hamster, fish or anything in between.
“Convenience means something a little different for every pet parent,” said Stacia Andersen, executive vice president and chief customer officer at PetSmart. “By joining the Uber Eats marketplace, we’re giving pet parents yet another way to shop for new and exciting products they can only get at PetSmart in the way that best fits their preference, schedule and lifestyle.”
“Pet owners know that when you’re out of kibble or litter, your day just won’t go as planned — I’m thrilled to be partnering with PetSmart to make pet must-haves available for delivery with just a few taps of the Uber Eats app,” said Christian Freese, head of grocery & retail for Uber Eats in the U.S. and Canada. “By continuing to invest in strong retail partnerships like this one we can help pet lovers get what they need delivered with the tap of a button — and without missing a moment.”
Since launching its first non-food partnership in 2020, followed by the introduction of its dedicated Kids and Baby category in 2021, Uber’s grocery, retail and new verticals business has grown to more than 100,000 merchant partners. PetSmart is Uber’s first national pet care partner, and will anchor the app’s Pet Supplies category across North America.
PetSmart joins Party City, Bed Bath & Beyond, Office Depot and other retailers on the Uber Eats app and dozens of grocery partners including The Albertsons Companies, Meijer Inc., Costco and more. In the U.S. and around the world, Uber is uniquely poised to meet consumers’ growing desire to save time and get more of what they need delivered on-demand within hours — if not minutes — rather than days.s
