WINNIPEG — SkipTheDishes is rolling out its Skip Express Lane across Canada, an innovative grocery and household item delivery service. By mid-2022, 38 fulfillment centres will be operational.
Skip Express Lane stores are now active on the network with locations in Winnipeg, London, Ont., and Toronto, with Edmonton and Calgary locations opening next week. Skip Express Lanes feature more than 1,500 items, including baby products, personal care items and everyday essentials at grocery-store prices, along with products from Skip restaurant partners and local businesses.
“We’re thrilled for Skip Express Lane to bring even more value to our customers across Canada, helping Skip to become an indispensable part of the lives of Canadians with an entirely new delivery service,” says Kevin Edwards, CEO of SkipTheDishes. “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.”
“Skip Express Lane fills an important gap in the market. Canadians will now be able to get everyday essentials and grocery items delivered to your door in 25 minutes or less,” says Howard Migdal, Chief Operating Officer of SkipTheDishes. “Even during peak demand when we’re processing several orders a minute, orders are packed and out the door in under 10 minutes for delivery.”
Skip Express Lane is expected to create roughly 1,000 jobs across the country.
