Shipt Launching Grocery Delivery in Memphis

Member-based grocery delivery expands service to the birthplace of Rock 'n' Roll

MEMPHIS, TN--(Marketwired - Nov 21, 2016) - Shipt, the fastest growing online grocery marketplace, today announced that it will begin delivering fresh groceries from local Kroger stores to Memphis residents beginning on December 1, 2016. At launch, over 350,000 households in the Memphis area will have access to grocery delivery from Shipt. To celebrate the launch of Shipt in Memphis, annual members who sign up prior to December 1 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 ingredients, seasonal selections and ingredients for quick, easy meals.

To gain access to Shipt grocery delivery, Memphis residents can select the Shipt membership that best fits their needs ($14/month or $99/year). Then through the Shipt app, members can shop the full selection of groceries offered at local Kroger stores, note any preferences, choose a one-hour delivery window and pay for their order. Shipt connects members with a community of Shoppers who hand pick their items and deliver them as soon as one hour after the order is placed, or up to 24 hours in advance.

"From music, to food and entertainment, Memphis is one of the most vibrant cities in the country," said Bill Smith, founder and CEO of Shipt. "Shopping for groceries is often the last way someone wants to spend their time. With the busy holiday season right around the corner, we know now is the perfect time to bring the convenience of Shipt to residents across Memphis."
