TORONTO, July 15, 2021 /CNW/ - Today, Canadian fashion retailer Groupe Dynamite Inc. announced the launch of its second partnership with Uber, offering same-day delivery for $10 CAD from participating stores across Southern Ontario. As the first national retailer in Canada to offer this service back in December 2020 in Montreal, Groupe Dynamite Inc. is proud to offer customers of its two brands, Garage and Dynamite, a convenient and timely delivery solution as stores begin to re-open.
"The success of our pilot program in Montreal was a clear indication that we needed to expand this service to other regions," says Liz Edmiston, President and Chief Executive Officer, Groupe Dynamite Inc. "Our partnership with Uber is monumental for our company and presents an opportunity for us to find new and innovative ways to connect with our customers nationwide."
Building on the success of its initial launch, Groupe Dynamite Inc. continues to work with the ride-share company to expand the service to more areas across Canada throughout 2021. With malls still closed and stores operating at only 15% capacity in Ontario, Uber joins Groupe Dynamite Inc. in their effort to continue offering customers exceptional service by providing an innovative solution to in-store shopping and curbside pick-up. Fans of the company's brands, Garage and Dynamite, can now shop summer's newest styles and accessories, and receive their order right at their front door within hours of ordering.
"As Canada re-opens, we've been focused on innovating and building new products to help businesses and users send and receive items easier and faster than before," said Lola Kassim, GM of Uber's Canadian Delivery business. "We're proud to work with Canadian retailer Groupe Dynamite to expand same-day delivery and offer a more seamless delivery experience for Ontario customers."
How It Works
Uber same-day delivery will be available for $10 CAD to eligible customers at checkout on the Garage and Dynamite e-commerce websites and apps. To be eligible, orders must be placed before 3 p.m. ET and all items ordered must be available at the participating shipping centre. The service area includes shipping addresses within a radius of up to 15 km around participating stores across Southern Ontario. Customers who opt for same-day service will receive a link to track their delivery on the Uber Eats website—no app necessary!
