HONOLULU, HI (June 25, 2020) – 7-Eleven Hawaii is partnering with Vroom Delivery to provide its customers with the convenience of delivery. Beginning June 29th, Hawaii’s largest convenience store chain will be adding this new service to two of its neighborhood stores. The first store is Nuuanu II located at 1602 Nuuanu Avenue; and the second is Moanalua located at 4805 Bougainville Drive.
John Nelson, CEO of Vroom Delivery said, “We are very excited to work with 7-Eleven Hawaii to bring this level of service and convenience to Hawaii. With the meaning of convenience rapidly shifting to e-commerce and home delivery, innovative chains like 7-Eleven Hawaii who are able to offer these services to their customers will have a huge advantage over those who do not.”
The company is initially limiting this service to two stores with plans to roll it out statewide. Operations Manager, Trevor Park states, “Because delivery is new to our Operations, we chose these two stores for the soft launch. We want to make sure the employee and customer experiences are to our standards before we introduce the service to additional stores. We cannot wait to expand the service across our entire store system.” The Nuuanu store will offer delivery Monday through Friday from 10:00am to 5:45pm; and will service addresses within a 1.5-mile radius. The Moanalua store will offer delivery daily from 1:00pm to 9:00pm and will service addresses within a 2-mile radius.
To place an order, customers can go to www.vroomdelivery.com/711hawaii or visit www.7ElevenHawaii.com. They will enter their address and a recommended location will appear. Once on the store site, customers will find many familiar food items like Spam® Musubi and freshly baked whole pizzas. Other categories can be conveniently ordered online like snacks, candy, non-alcoholic beverages, beer, wine and household goods that include private brand products and other exclusive 7-Eleven Hawaii items. The minimum purchase is ten dollars and all major credit cards are accepted. And for a limited time, the delivery fee will be waived to encourage their customers to use this new service.
Merchandising Manager, Mark Imada said, “We are excited to be working with Vroom Delivery to offer this service, especially given the current circumstance. Home delivery is a great way for our customers to safely access our products and order from the comfort of their homes.” 7-Eleven Hawaii is targeting to make deliveries in an average time of less than thirty minutes. The company is aiming to have the fastest turnaround time in the market. In addition, 7-Eleven Hawaii will not be using a third-party driver. Instead, customers will be greeted by one of its employees, a familiar face, upon receipt of their orders.
