Shipt Grocery Delivery Expands Across Alabama

Member-based grocery delivery company adds new markets in home state

BIRMINGHAM, AL--(Marketwired - Jul 11, 2017) - Shipt, the fastest growing online grocery marketplace, today announced it will expand delivery from Publix stores to four new markets in Alabama. To celebrate Shipt's Alabama expansion, new members who sign up for an annual Shipt membership will receive $25 off their first order.

On July 18, 2017, Shipt will begin offering home delivery from Publix stores in Montgomery and Tuscaloosa. Beginning July 20, 2017, residents in Mobile and Gulf Shores will also be able to shop Publix's full list of grocery and household items for delivery. With the expansions, Shipt will offer grocery delivery to more than 770,000 households in Alabama, and delivery from approximately 80% of Publix's retail locations.

"We founded Shipt in Alabama just two short years ago and we owe a large part of our success to the initial support of our Alabama members," said Bill Smith, founder and CEO of Shipt. "Since launch, we've received requests for delivery in additional markets throughout Alabama, and from additional retailers. This most recent expansion across our home state is an example of Shipt's commitment to giving more people access to a grocery delivery service that they will love and trust."

Through the Shipt app, Shipt members select their grocery items, note any preferences, choose a one-hour delivery window, and pay for their order.
