7-Eleven has partnered with delivery startup Postmates to offer delivery to customers. Now, people can have nearly anything they want delivered to them within a few hours, in many cases, for no more than a small fee on top of the regular retail price. Not feeling well? Have 7-Eleven deliver you a can of chicken soup and some Nyquil in around 30 minutes.
To order from 7-Eleven, customers can simply open the Postmates website or app for iOS or Android and search for the nearest 7-Eleven store.
Currently, only select stores in San Francisco and Oakland, Calif. are now offering on-demand delivery through the Postmates iOS, Android or web app.
But 7-Eleven expects to expand delivery later this year to other areas where there is a high density of store like Austin, New York, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C. and Chicago.
