Shipt members will be able to shop fresh foods and household essentials from these retailers, in addition to an assortment of product categories that are unique to each retailer.
“Texas was one of the first states where we launched Shipt in back in 2015, and we’ve since built a lot of momentum in the state, making it a natural fit to expand our marketplace. Now, more Texas residents than ever can take advantage of same-day delivery from a variety of retailers they know and love,” said Bill Smith, Shipt founder and CEO. “Through our app, our members have access to everything they need, when they need it, right at their fingertips.”
Members can note preferences, choose a one-hour delivery window and pay for their order, all within the app. The annual membership grants access to free, unlimited delivery on orders of more than $35.
Leading up to the launch, Shipt plans to add more than 450 new shoppers across the state of Texas to be part of the team responsible for ensuring fulfillment of each order.
