Gophr App announced Gophr Direct this week, a new service from the delivery startup. Gophr Direct allows your favorite local stores to offer same-day and expedited delivery, simply place your order with a participating store like you always do and request delivery. The store will add the cost of delivery to your order and send that delivery through to Gophr Direct.
“Gophr Direct will be a game-changer for our local merchants,” says Warren Vandever, Founder & CEO at Gophr App. “We hate to see the mom and pops unable to keep the doors open, and are doing everything possible to give them a fighting chance against e-commerce giants.”
Gophr’s first deliveries came from Cayenne Marketing, and since then they have made several deliveries to Lake Charles and surrounding areas. Some other participating stores are:
- Niche Creative Studio
- House of Sole
- Minuteman Press
- Accessory Zone
- Uniformly Fit
Gophr Direct is now servicing areas from Jennings to Vinton, and Cameron to DeRidder as well as the Lake Area. For the complete list of stores available with Gophr Direct see them at https://gophr.app/direct.
