Uber Technologies Inc. on Friday announced a new partnership with Meijer that will offer grocery delivery to its Midwest store customers.

Starting now, a Meijer grocery delivery option offering on-demand and scheduled delivery will be on the Uber Eats app. It’s available to shoppers at nearly 250 Meijer locations in Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, Wisconsin and Kentucky.

This is part of Uber Eats’ expansion efforts into grocery e-commerce and delivery. Shoppers will be able to order their favorite Meijer “must-haves,” according to a news release, such as fresh and frozen options to bake goods and produce for delivery to their doorsteps.

Uber independent contractors shop for and deliver groceries. Customers pay both a service and delivery fee, according to Uber, just like all other Uber Eats orders. Both the service and delivery fees, Uber said, are based on conditions such as time of day and courier availability.
