PETBARN stores across Tasmania, including the Derwent Park store, have launched a ‘Store to Door Same Day Delivery Service’ that will give pet parents the opportunity to order their pet food online and have it delivered on their doorstep the same day.

The Petbarn Foundation has partnered with Uber to ensure the health and wellbeing of both pets and pet parents, while being at the cutting-edge of on-demand delivery.

“Customers order online and an Uber comes to our door, collects the products and delivers straight to the customer’s house,” Petbarn Derwent Park assistant store manager Ben Richardson said.

This service will provide same day delivery, which is fast and efficient.

“It’s been great for people in isolation and we’ve been flat out with it.”

Petbarn chief executive officer George Wahby said the service will provide a number of benefits to customers and is an Australian first for the pet care industry.

As part of the initiative, the Petbarn Foundation are collectively donating 20,000 free deliveries to help vulnerable and elderly pet parents.

“Care is at the core of everything we do at Petbarn and we understand that many of our elderly and more vulnerable customers are feeling anxious about being able to get to the shops,” Mr Wahby said.

“These free same day deliveries will provide much need support during these challenging times.

“We’re excited to be bringing Store to Door Same Day Delivery to our Tasmanian community – it’s the latest in a number of initiatives we have introduced that make it easier for all pet parents to get their pet essentials speedily and when they need it.”

Pet parents will receive same day delivery seven days per week when they order through before 4pm.

Same Day Delivery is currently available for an introductory price of $9.95 per delivery.
