Petco Health and Wellness Company, Inc, is now in an expanded partnership with DoorDash, one of its existing fulfillment partners, to make Petco's portfolio of products available in the US through the DoorDash Marketplace mobile app and website. According to a company release,1 over 10,000 Petco products from Petco are featured on the DoorDash Marketplace, including food, treats, beds, bowls, toys and additional supplies for dogs, cats, small animals, fish, reptiles, and birds.
"Ninety-eight percent of DoorDash consumers in the US have access to retail or grocery stores on our platform. The future of commerce is on-demand and local as consumers want faster and easier ways to get the items they need delivered to them right now," said Fuad Hannon, VP of New Verticals at DoorDash.1 "Whether it's the dog food you forgot to grab while out or a treat or toy, consumers now have convenient on-demand access to pets' whole health needs. Our partnership helps Petco meet consumers where they are and further fulfills DoorDash's mission to grow and empower local economies."
Along with this announcement, Petco shared1 it has released updates with its own Petco app, including a pet profile that address wellness needs. This offers pet owners a centralized, easy way to remain updated on their pets’ nutrition, vaccinations, and grooming appointment reminders. Klarna's interest-free "Pay in 4" solution for purchases is now available in the Petco app as it was already an option on the website. This enables more financial flexibility.
"Our expanded partnership with DoorDash makes Petco's differentiated assortment of health and wellness products accessible to even more pet parents across the country," expressed Darren MacDonald, chief customer officer at Petco.1 "Combined with new enhancements to the Petco app, we're continuing to meet the unique needs of pets and pet parents in a way that no one else can."
