goPuff stocks more than 2,000 products in centrally located warehouses in each city in which it operates to bring products directly to the customer. From munchies, ice cream, and beverages to household, consumer, and pet goods, the delivery concept answers the call for consumers in need day or night with solutions spanning eight categories.
“goPuff’s mission is to create more time in the day for our customer and consistently redefine the very meaning of convenience by providing a high-quality experience at an exceptional value,” said Rafael Ilishayev, goPuff co-founder. “We’re thrilled to bring that experience to Columbia and deliver the moments that matter most to this vibrant community.”
