Postmates ‘Deliver Anything’ App Spreads To Minneapolis



Via News Release

Postmates unlocks the inventory of a city by connecting customers with a dedicated fleet of couriers to deliver anything in under an hour. Postmates has completed over 2 million deliveries in 24 markets across the U.S., and allows customers to get any item — from takeout and groceries to retail items and even prescriptions — delivered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and in minutes. The initial MPLS delivery zone covers Uptown, Downtown, Southwest Minneapolis, Dinkytown, Nordeast, Minnehaha and West St. Paul.”

Imagine being able to order in brunch from Uptown Diner, dinner from Famous Dave’s, a charger from the Apple store and groceries from The Wedge — at the touch of a button. Postmates makes that possible by picking up from merchants that don’t offer delivery themselves.

The app, available for iOS and Android, as well as Postmates web, allows users to browse an inventory of thousands of restaurants and stores in their city, add items instantly, watch their rated “Postmate” (in a car) moving on the map, and track their order status in real
time. Deliveries start at $5 and customers pay for everything within the app — including tip — so you never have to run out and get cash.

Postmates is also available in the San Francisco Bay Area (including SF proper, South Bay and East Bay), Seattle, New York City, Washington D.C., Chicago, Los Angeles, Orange County, Austin, Boston, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Miami, San Diego, Denver, Vegas, Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Portland, Phoenix and Charlotte.
