SkipTheDishes rolls out Skip Express Lane across Canada

SkipTheDishes, Canada’s largest food delivery network, has announced the nationwide expansion of its Skip Express Lane grocery and household item delivery service.

The rollout of Skip Express Lane across Canada will see the launch of 38 new fulfillment centres by mid-2022 from coast to coast, delivering local favourites to Canadians in 25 minutes or less.

Skip Express Lane stores are now active on the network with locations in Winnipeg, London, and downtown Toronto, with Edmonton and Calgary locations also opening in December. Stores had already been launched in Winnipeg and London in July and August 2021. The national rollout will focus on increasing the availability of household products for customers.

It also opened its first fulfillment centre in Skip’s hometown of Winnipeg on July 29, 2021. Each fulfillment centre will operate seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 2 a.m. with delivery fees starting at $1.99, or free delivery for purchases over $25.

Skip Express Lanes will feature an extensive menu of over 1,500 items, including baby products, personal care items, and everyday essentials at grocery store prices, along with exclusive products from Skip restaurant partners and local businesses.

At scale, the expansion is expected to create approximately 1,000 jobs across the country, bringing snacks, household goods, groceries and fresh produce to millions of customers. Skip also works directly with local vendors and companies in Skip Express Lane locations to make it easier than ever for customers to shop locally and support their neighbourhoods and communities.

“To us, Skip Express Lane is not just a convenient option for Canadians, but it’s another way we are working hard to support local businesses through the pandemic and beyond,” said Kevin Edwards, CEO of SkipTheDishes.

Skip isn’t the only provider offering this kind of expansion.

DoorDash has launched a new DashMart concept that delivers everyday essentials, groceries, and local products to customers and also offers restaurants and merchants the chance to sell retail products and reach more customers in new ways.
