At Home enhances quick delivery options

PLANO, Texas — At Home Group Inc.  has expanded its partnership with Pickup, a last-mile logistics network, to include delivery partner Postmates.

Pickup has been At Home’s delivery partner for several years and added next-day local delivery starting at $10 in March 2020.

San Francisco-based Postmates was founded in 2011 and uses what it calls its Urban Logistics program to connect customers with local couriers for delivery.

“This new partnership with Postmates through Pickup allows us to diversify and ramp up our local delivery platform just in time for the peak holiday season,” said At Home Chairman and CEO Lee Bird. “We expect customers to be shopping online more than ever before. That’s why we’re adding an additional partner to anticipate the demand of online purchases and make local delivery as quick and convenient as possible.

“In addition, with our buy-online-pickup-in-store and curbside options, our customers can shop the way they want and do it safely.”
