WINSTON-SALEM, NC--(Marketwired - Feb 16, 2017) - Shipt, the fastest growing online grocery marketplace, today announced that it will begin delivering fresh groceries to Winston-Salem and Greensboro residents beginning on March 2, 2017. Earlier this week, Shipt also announced it will be launching delivery to Asheville residents on February 28, 2017. With the launch of these new markets, Shipt will now service five metros and offer grocery delivery to more than 1.5 million households across North Carolina. To celebrate the North Carolina expansion of Shipt, annual members who sign up prior to the service launches will receive $25 off their first grocery order.
Founded in 2014, Shipt is committed to simplifying the lives of its members by offering an alternative to time-consuming grocery shopping. Shipt delivers all items available at traditional grocery stores, which are conveniently listed in its app in designated sections, including categories that feature healthy and organic products, seasonal selections and ingredients for quick, easy meals.
To gain access to Shipt grocery delivery, Asheville, Winston-Salem and Greensboro area residents can purchase an annual Shipt membership for $99. Then, through the Shipt app, members can shop the full selection of groceries offered at a local store, note any preferences, choose a one-hour delivery window and pay for their order. Shipt utilizes its own community of Shoppers who hand pick every item for delivery in as soon as one hour after the order is placed.
"Whether it's cheering on a favorite basketball team or hiking the Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina residents are known for constantly staying active," said Bill Smith, founder and CEO of Shipt. "With Shipt's recent expansion across North Carolina, residents will now have access to healthy and organic grocery without having to sacrifice their time spent enjoying the Carolina blue skies."
Shipt does not utilize surge pricing, even during peak times, and members have access to unlimited free delivery for orders over $35. To sign up for Shipt and learn more about the service and availability, visit Shipt.com.
