Petco partners with DoorDash to provide same-day U.S. delivery

(Reuters) – Petco has entered into a partnership with DoorDash Inc to provide same-day delivery to customers in the United States, the pet health and wellness company said on Thursday.

The agreement comes as spending on pets has surged during the COVID-19 pandemic and follows rival Petsmart’s similar deal with DoorDash.

San Diego-based Petco, which last week filed with U.S. regulators for an initial public offering of common stock, said customers can avail same-day service through and the Petco app, with no fee or membership required.

Petco was acquired by private equity firms CVC Capital Partners and Canadian Pension Plan Investment Board for $4.6 billion in 2016.
