WIRE
Uber adds Costco,
Albertsons to
grocery delivery
service
Uber Technologies,
Inc. and Costco have
launched a delivery pilot
with 25 retail locations
across the state of Texas
where Costco members
can have their groceries
delivered within hours
with Uber and Uber Eats.
Over the coming
weeks, seven additional
Costco warehouses will
be available to Uber users
via Uber and Uber Eats
mobile apps.
The minimum order
amount is $35 and
delivery is free for
Uber Pass and Eats
Pass holders. This is
Uber's first pilot with a
food wholesaler in the
United States.
The news follows
Uber's recent
announcement of their
first national grocery
partnership in the
US, with Albertson's
Co., which more than
doubled the availability
of Uber's grocery offering
with the addition of over
400 cities and towns
including San Francisco
and Phoenix.
" One thing we know
to be true is that people
across the United
States are looking
for convenient and
affordable ways to stock
their pantries without
leaving home-especially
for last-minute musthave
items, " said Raj
Beri, Uber's head of
grocery delivery. " Today's
announcement with
Costco is an important
step toward marrying the
magic of wholesale retail
with on-demand delivery
in the palm of your hand,
and I'm thrilled that
Texans are getting a first
look at what's to come. "
Costco currently offers
online ordering and
delivery through its own
channels and additional
third parties.
" Our mission
statement at Costco
is to take care of
our members, " said
Ron Vachris, Costco
executive vice president
of merchandising. " By
finding solutions to
deliver merchandise
quickly and efficiently,
we continue to offer
our members value,
convenience and
member service. "
Natural Grocers
pilots hydroponic
GardenBox for
freshly grown
produce
Natural Grocers
is bringing local
hydroponic, organic
produce grown just steps
away from its customers
with the launch of
its new hydroponic
GardenBox.
The pilot program,
which takes place at the
retailer's Green Mountain
store in Lakewood, grows
an array of organic leafy
greens that travel just 82
steps from hydroponic
garden to customer.

Living produce is harvested daily, walked from
the garden to Natural Grocers' produce aisle.
GardenBox delivers
a trifecta of value
to customers: living
produce with roots
intact for a longer
shelf life and better
flavor, certified organic
by Where Food
Comes From Organic
(WFCFO), and the Clean
Hydroponic Produce
seal-at Natural Grocers'
Always Affordable prices.
A variety of GardenBox
lettuces such as
Hampton, Brentwood,
Alkindus, Tropicana, Muir,
Marciano, and Truchas
will be sold at the Green
Mountain (Lakewood,
CO) store beginning July
7, 2021.
All GardenBox greens
will be priced at $1.99
per head.
Natural Grocers has
adopted hydroponic
farming practices
that prioritize the
sustainability and quality
of GardenBox greens.
Certified Organic seeds
are germinated in
organic-friendly peat
and coconut husk,
where roots develop
before being transferred
to the vertical, spacesaving
system.
The GardenBox
hydroponic process uses
significantly less water
than outdoor agricultural
methods.
Nutrient-rich water
trickles across the
roots throughout the
growing process and
can be adjusted as
needed. Living produce
is harvested daily, walked
from the garden to the
produce aisle.
This allows Natural
Grocers to offer
customers varieties
of leafy greens not
typically found in other
grocery stores.
GardenBox's Rooted
in Fresh quality means
the roots remain intact
so that they stay fresh
and crisp longer and
some products may get
even sweeter when roots
are kept in water after
harvesting.
