"Texas residents have been some of our most loyal Shipt members, and we continue to receive requests from new and current metros for greater access to grocery delivery," said Bill Smith, founder and CEO of Shipt. "This expansion is a reflection of this demand, and our growing partnership with H-E-B has allowed us to work in our shared mission to serve these communities, together."

Additional coverage in the San Antonio and Austin metros will begin August 10, 2017, with Shipt adding more than 185,000 households to its coverage areas across these two cities. Shipt launched service with H-E-B in Texas in May of 2016 and with these upcoming expansions, Shipt will be bringing the convenience of grocery delivery to more than 4.6 million households across the state. To celebrate the expansions in San Antonio and Austin, new Shipt members in these areas can try the service for two weeks free of charge and they will receive $25 off their first order.

"Our longstanding partnership with Shipt continues to give us new opportunities to reach our loyal customers and enable H-E-B groceries to be delivered directly to their homes," said Paul Tepfenhart, Group Vice President of Omnichannel Retail for H-E-B. "The expansion with Shipt allows us to provide more H-E-B customers with access to grocery delivery service."

Shipt connects members with a community of Shoppers who handpick their items and deliver them as soon as one hour after the order is placed. Leading up to the expansion, Shipt plans to grow their network of Shoppers, who are responsible for ensuring complete, accurate fulfillments of each order.
