Uber Technologies Inc. said it is in a partnership with Smart & Final Stores Inc., a grocery warehouse store for household and business customers, to expand their on-demand and scheduled grocery delivery to customers across the West Coast.

The company said 173 Smart & Final stores across Arizona, California and Nevada are available to shop through Uber and Uber Eats, with plans to bring on board all of Smart & Final's 254 locations.

Smart & Final is the first major grocery U.S. partner to offer alcohol to customers through Uber Eats. Alcohol is now available for delivery in California with plans to expand the offering to Arizona and Nevada later this year, the company said.

"Grocery continues to be a rapid area of growth for us this year with millions of consumers ordering groceries and other essentials through Uber each month," said Oskar Hjertonsson, head of grocery at Uber.
