Lula, Uber Launch Convenience Store Delivery



Convenience store delivery service Lula is collaborating with Uber Eats to offer on-demand delivery of convenience store items, according to a Monday (Sept. 20) report from 

Lula works with convenience store chains and mom-and-pop shops alike to list stock for local delivery. With the addition of Uber Eats, the venture will expand to offer delivery service for stores across the country, according to the article.  

With Lula, convenience stores pay a monthly membership fee in exchange for a virtual store available on all major delivery platforms, as well as unlimited customer deliveries, according to Lula’s website. Participating stores, in turn, receive a weekly or monthly payment for items sold through the online store.  

Lula’s delivery team handles deliveries, which are made in less than an hour, according to the website. All items are bagged in Lula’s recyclable bags. Stores can add from 50 up to 3,000 items in their online Lula store.  

Philadelphia-based Lula operates in New York, Maryland, Georgia, South Carolina, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Arizona and Pennsylvania. Through the joint effort with Uber Eats, broadening Lula’s expansion throughout the U.S. is expected by the end of 2022. 

Speedy delivery of takeout food, grocery store items and essentials from convenience stores is growing at a fever pitch in the wake of the pandemic. Last week, Kroger announced a virtual convenience store collaboration with Instacart that delivers groceries and other items within a 30-minute time frame. Items ordered using the Kroger Delivery Now service will be fulfilled by Kroger and delivered by Instacart.
