Pink Dot Inks Exclusive Pact With Postmates as It Eyes Expansion
LOS ANGELES — California grocery, liquor and convenience store chain Pink Dot entered into an exclusive partnership with Postmates as it plans to expand outside its three-store footprint.
"In the past few years as a merchant on the Postmates platform, we have proven our ability to successfully partner with Postmates to satisfy customers' expectations. Based on our phenomenal success as one of the highest-performing merchants on the Postmates platform, we pursued other opportunities to expand our business with Postmates," said Pink Dot President Sol Yamini.
"We recently opened up our location in East LA and have plans to expand Pink Dot to West L.A./Santa Monica, The Valley, Phoenix, NYC and Chicago and we felt that Postmates was the perfect partner to help us scale our expansion. So with Postmates technology and the Pink Dot trusted brand and selections, you really can get just about anything you want delivered to your door in minutes! It's a perfect partnership," the executive added.
Delivery fees start at $1.99. However, customers do not pay a delivery fee when they subscribe to Postmates' subscription service, Unlimited, for $7.99 per month when paid annually.
"Partnering with such an iconic Southern California brand like Pink Dot is something we are very excited about," said Dan Mosher, senior vice president, merchant lead, Postmates. "Postmates maintains a leadership position in L.A. and the southwest where we hold No. 1 market share — nearly 80 percent more market share than the next largest competitor, according to Second Measure, so we are well positioned to help Pink Dot continue to grow."
