The Texas-based sporting goods and outdoor recreation retailer has announced a partnership with DoorDash to offer on-demand delivery from Academy's more than 280 stores. Academy products can be ordered directly through the DoorDash app, arriving in under an hour on average.

"We're excited to partner with the leading local commerce platform to give our customers another convenient way to get the products they need quickly so they can have fun out there."

All Academy locations will also be available on DashPass, DoorDash's membership program that offers members a $0 delivery fee and reduced service fee on eligible orders from thousands of restaurants, grocery and convenience stores nationwide.
