Shipt to introduce same-day delivery in Hampton Roads Metro Area

Published 05 March 2018

Online grocery delivery service Shipt will launch same-day delivery of groceries and home essentials from three major retailers to customers in the Hampton Roads metro area in Virginia.

Beginning March 15, 2018, Shipt will deliver from Target, Lidl, and Kroger stores to the Hampton Roads, VA metro area. On the same day, Shipt will expand their existing retail offerings in Richmond, VA by adding same-day delivery from Target.

Cumulatively, the launch gives 1.6 million households in Virginia access to Target, Kroger, and Lidl products, delivered by Shipt in as little as one hour.

Shipt members will be able to shop fresh foods and household essentials from Target, Lidl and Kroger, in addition to an assortment of product categories that are unique to each retailer.

To celebrate the launch, new Shipt members who sign up prior to March 15 will receive an annual membership for $49 (regularly $99).

Founded in 2014, Shipt is committed to simplifying its members’ lives by offering a new, convenient same-day shopping experience. Shipt’s marketplace gives customers the ability to browse, search and shop the in-store assortment of products online.

Customers can note preferences, choose a one-hour delivery window and pay for their order, all within the app. Shipt's expert team of shoppers takes care of selecting, purchasing and delivering the items.

Shipt founder and CEO Bill Smith said: “We are set on bringing the convenience of same-day delivery and the personalized experience of Shipt to as many people as possible.

“Through our app, everything our members need is right at their fingertips and can be on their kitchen counter in as soon as one hour.”

Leading up to the expansion, Shipt will be adding more than 400 Shipt Shoppers in Virginia to be a part of the team responsible for ensuring complete, accurate fulfillments of each order.
