7-Eleven Inc. has announced that it will deliver to more than 2,000 “hot spots” such as parks, beaches and concert venues in the U.S.
Bringing shoppers greater convenience
Embedded under the retailer’s delivery app 7NOW, “7NOW Pins” will allow shoppers to order products and get them delivered to hot spot locations, including New York’s Central Park and Venice Beach in Los Angeles. Customers can locate the nearest pin and order as usual.
7-Eleven will use Postmates to deliver to public hot spots. It uses DoorDash as well as Postmates to deliver to customers’ homes.
Reach 200,00 hot spot locations
7-Eleven expects to eventually have 200,000 hot spot locations. 7-Eleven’s Executive Vice-President and Chief Digital Information and Marketing officer, Gurmeet Singh, said, “we’ve been on this journey to redefine convenience […] this makes it easy for people to stay in the moment.”
7-Eleven’s Vice President of Delivery, Raghu Mahadevan, said, “we continuously challenge ourselves to find even more ways to offer convenience and value to our customers—when and where people need it most.”
7-Eleven is not the first brand to offer hot spot delivery. In April last year, Domino’s started delivery with Domino’s Hotspots and has more than 150,000 public delivery locations available nationwide.
