Salisbury, NC (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) - Leading omnichannel grocery retail group Ahold Delhaize USA has announced a new agreement with local commerce platform DoorDash to make an additional on-demand grocery delivery marketplace available to customers at each of its local omnichannel brands – Food Lion, Hannaford, Giant Food, The GIANT Company and Stop & Shop. Delivery from DoorDash is expected to be available to customers of all brands by March.
“As leading omnichannel grocery retailers in their markets, Ahold Delhaize USA brands are focused on providing fast and convenient grocery delivery for customers.
