Petco Adds Shipt Same-Day Delivery Service
Nearly 1,300 Petco stores across the country will begin offering same-day delivery through Shipt, a membership-based online grocery marketplace. The service is expected to begin April 18.
“We strive to provide a connected, seamless shopping experience that meets the needs of modern pet parents–no matter when, where, or how they want to shop with us,” said Karime Benaissa, vice president and general manager of e-commerce for Petco, which has headquarters in San Diego. “We’re thrilled to add Shipt same-day delivery as another option and a new way for pet lovers to shop our highly curated selection of high-quality pet products, including our own WholeHearted food for dogs and cats, and other Petco exclusive products that can’t be found anywhere else.”
To celebrate the partnership, new Shipt members who sign up before April 18 will receive an annual membership for $49 (regularly $99). Shipt members can determine if delivery is available in their area by visiting shipt.com/petco. The annual membership grants access to free, unlimited delivery on orders of more than $35.
“At Shipt, we make shopping more convenient for our members by providing access to all their household and grocery needs, when they need it. We’re thrilled to now offer the same convenient service for every member of the family, including pets,” said Kelly Caruso, chief executive officer of Shipt, which is headquartered in Birmingham, Ala. “Our partnership with Petco demonstrates Shipt’s continued commitment to expand into new categories, make life easier for our members, and bring the store to their doors.”
