You can now order local craft beer, wine, and pet food to your door in Toronto

As of today, foodora is delivering more than food to customers across Toronto.

The food delivery app now offers the chance to toggle between “restaurants” and “shops” to order anything from a meal to pet food to flowers to local craft beer.

The expansion of the types of delivered offered through the app means that you’ll now find more than 60 new vendors in the new “shops” section, on top of the 1,500+ restaurants already available.

There are plans to roll this feature out to select foodora markets in 2020, and there are also plans for several major Canadian retailers to launch on the platform over the next few months.

“We know that Canadians are early e-commerce adopters – they expect their preferred retailers to be accessible from anywhere at any time, and foodora is the on-demand piece of this puzzle,” said David Albert, managing director of foodora Canada in a release.

In addition to 7-Eleven, which launched on the service in 2018, and the LCBO, which launched in September, retailers now available under the “shops” section include and exceed the following:

• Wine Rack (11 locations across downtown Toronto)
• Fresh & Wild Food Market (69 Spadina Ave.)
• The Dog Bowl (984 Dundas St. W.)
• Popeye’s Supplements Canada (6 locations across Toronto)
• Pace Pharmacy and Compounding (14 Isabella St.)
• Strange Love Coffee (101 Spadina Ave.)
• Reid’s Distillery (32 Logan Ave.)
• An assortment of 12 local breweries, including Amsterdam Brewhouse, Henderson Brewing Co., and Bellwoods Brewery to the west; Rorschach Brewing Co. and Eastbound Brewing to the east

“When we heard foodora was an option for delivering our beer, we immediately got on board,” said Joey Seaman, head of business development at Bellwoods Brewery. “This is definitely the most convenient way of getting our beer into the fridges of our local Toronto customers that can’t easily make it to our Bellwoods Brewery bottle shops.”

Those foodora riders who will be delivering from alcohol vendors across the city are Smart Serve-certified.

If the order recipient fails to produce valid ID, appears to be intoxicated, or attempts to purchase for a minor or impaired individual, foodora says that the delivery will be cancelled, and a $20 restocking fee will be applied.
