CalgaryGrocery.ca Delivery Initiative Expands to Edmonton, Rebrands as AlbertaGrocery.ca
Edmonton, Alberta (04 June 2020) – An online grocery store and delivery service founded in Calgary is expanding to support businesses and customers in Edmonton. CalgaryGrocery.ca, now rebranded as AlbertaGrocery.ca, will make its first round of deliveries in Edmonton on June 19.
In late March, local distributors, last-mile delivery experts, and a local supply chain technology company launched CalgaryGrocery.ca to support local businesses and people at home. The decision to expand the initiative came after a very positive response in Calgary, as well as demand.
AlbertaGrocery.ca has been growing its online presence as well. You can follow them @albertagrocery.ca on Facebook and Instagram.
“In the ten weeks since our launch, we’ve onboarded twelve Alberta-based companies. Some of them previously serviced restaurants and schools, while others had to close due to a lack of foot traffic because of the crisis. This initiative allowed them to re-open for delivery and reach new customers,” says Kaitlin Mercier, VP Services at Routeique, which provides the technology for managing orders, inventory, and routing. “We’re excited to bring this service to Edmontonians, and to help support even more Alberta businesses.”
AlbertaGrocery.ca continues to add to its initial offerings of staple groceries like dairy, meat, and produce. New items include a more extensive range of produce, freshly baked desserts from Alberta pastry shops, and prepared meals like Shepherd’s Pie and lasagna.
ButterBlock & Co. is a Calgary favourite, and now Edmontonians can enjoy their freshly baked goodies, too!
AlbertaGrocery.ca is keeping the same streamlined order and delivery model: customers can visit www.albertagrocery.ca, place an order, and choose their delivery date. They will receive an email two days before delivery, telling them when to expect their groceries. When the driver completes the no-contact delivery, customers receive a text notification and confirmation of delivery.
AlbertaGrocery.ca looks forward to engaging with more Edmonton-based businesses to bring their local favourites to Albertans. For partnership inquiries or more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
