MENLO PARK, CA--(Marketwired - November 07, 2016) - Deliv, a leading same-day delivery company, today announced that PetSmart, the largest specialty pet retailer of services and solutions for the lifetime needs of pets, has selected Deliv to power PetSmart.com's same-day and scheduled delivery service in 17 top markets in which Deliv operates, leveraging PetSmart's extensive bricks and mortar network.
Pet parents can select time-tailored same-day and scheduled delivery service in major metro areas across the country, saving PetSmart customers a last-minute trip to the store and freeing them from the hassle of carrying, loading and unloading supplies for their pets. The new PetSmart.com delivery service is available now in Los Angeles, Orange County, San Francisco, San Jose, Las Vegas, Atlanta, Miami, Seattle and Chicago. By mid Nov., the new delivery service will be available in eight additional metro areas for a total of nearly 2,500 zip codes serviced.
"As the trusted partner to pet parents and pets in every moment of their lives, we are continually looking for ways to make the shopping experience easier and more convenient for our customers," said Eran Cohen, chief customer experience officer, PetSmart. "With Deliv's scheduled delivery capability, our customers can select where, when and how they want their products delivered. From same-day delivery to a scheduled timeframe two days out and with a multi-hour delivery window, Deliv's focus and expertise in tailored delivery service is evident in its flexibility to accommodate our customers' personal schedules."
By mid November, PetSmart customers located in 17 of Deliv's markets can shop on PetSmart.com and select scheduled delivery on the product page for anything from 50 pound bags of dog food to bulky containers of cat litter or a fun pet fashion accessory like a hoodie, collar or leash, as well as seasonal holiday items.* PetSmart.com customers can schedule specific delivery windows and know exactly when their orders will arrive thanks to Deliv's real-time GPS tracking feature. Delivery can be set within a few hours of purchase and up to two days later.
Deliv is immediately notified by PetSmart upon a scheduled online order being placed and then a Deliv driver picks up the items from the nearest PetSmart location turning hundreds of PetSmart stores into localized fulfillment resources from which it can offer a completely seamless, highly efficient delivery experience.
"PetSmart is a true leader in pet specialty retail. From its recent accomplishment of 7 million pets adopted out of its stores since 1994 to using Deliv to improve the customer experience and streamline online order fulfillment, this is a company that not only has a clear vision, but knows how to execute on that vision at every level," said Deliv founder and CEO, Daphne Carmeli. "As a pet parent and loyal PetSmart shopper myself, and on behalf of Deliv's employees, investors and partners, I can say our entire team is inspired by PetSmart's commitment to its customers, pets, and to us. PetSmart's decision to choose Deliv as a local delivery partner demonstrates significant validation of our model. We look forward to growing together."
Service in the following additional markets is expected by mid Nov.: Dallas, Houston, Philadelphia, Boston, New York City, Yonkers, Northern New Jersey and Washington D.C.
