SAN FRANCISCO — Same-day delivery company Shipt is off to a breakneck start in 2022 with the launch of two new retailers that boost the number of store locations available on Shipt’s marketplace by more than 40%.
Available this week on the Shipt marketplace, customers now have access to thousands of over-the-counter medications (O-T-C), beauty, personal care, household, and convenience products from the health and wellness retailer Walgreens, as well as a variety of snacks, drinks, and household essentials from the convenience store retailer, 7-Eleven, Inc. Together, these launches represent an impressive show of momentum and growth for Shipt, which now boasts a diverse collection of more than 140 retail partnerships.
“We’re thrilled to welcome 7-Eleven and Walgreens to our dynamic marketplace of retailers,” said Rina Hurst, Shipt’s chief business officer. “Located on corners of nearly every major market in America, these two powerhouse brands are incredible complements to our marketplace, bringing customers even more variety and product categories while driving added convenience for each brands’ shoppers. Shipt brings to each of these relationships our personal approach to service and a differentiation of the high-quality experience our shoppers deliver to each and every customer.”
“7-Eleven strives to be the first choice for convenience. Anytime, anywhere,” said Raghu Mahadevan, 7-Eleven SVP and chief digital officer. “Expanding our delivery portfolio with Shipt allows shoppers access to more than 3,000 7-Eleven products, including groceries, over-the-counter medicines, household goods and a range of food and beverage options, in as soon as an hour.”
“People across the country depend on Walgreens for their health and wellness needs and everyday essentials, and we look forward to our brand reaching even more customers through our collaboration with Shipt,” said Stefanie Kruse, vice president of Digital Commerce and Omnichannel, Walgreens. “Shipt demonstrates a clear commitment to service and convenience, and we are excited to offer their above-and-beyond approach to personal shopping and delivery to our customers.”
The addition of these two retailers on the marketplace increases Shipt’s store coverage across the country by more than 40% and represents the most stores ever added to Shipt’s marketplace at one time. Walgreens will be launching nationwide with over 25,000 items available from more than 6,303 locations and 7-Eleven with nearly 6,450. To drive adoption in markets, Shipt is working with both Walgreens and 7-Eleven on unique customer promotions. For more information, please visit Shipt.com or the Shipt app.
