Retailer Meijer is working with Shipt to launch a home grocery delivery service in Detroit and southeastern Michigan. From 15 September, consumers will be able to use the Shipt smartphone app to buy items from one of 25 Detroit-area Meijer stores offering the service and then choose their preferred one-hour delivery window.
Shipt’s grocery delivery service is membership-based, with either annual or monthly options. For $99 a year, Shipt members receive unlimited free grocery deliveries on all orders over $35.
Shipt shopper hand pick customers’ items in store and deliver them in as little as one hour after the order is placed.
Meijer announced its Detroit agreement with Shipt yesterday (1 September) – just one day after Food Lion revealed that it was extending its home delivery service in the Charlotte, North Carolina area in partnership with Instacart.
