Shipt Expands Service in N.C. to Wilmington

Shipt has expanded its grocery delivery service to Wilmington, N.C., where residents can begin ordering from their preferred local grocers beginning April 4.

The Birmingham, Ala.-based third-party service now reaches nearly 1.6 million households in North Carolina. Like those in other areas, residents in and around Wilmington can purchase an annual Shipt membership for $99. However, annual members who sign up prior to the service launch will receive $25 off their first grocery order. Shipt members have access to unlimited free delivery for orders of more than $35.

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's marketplace lists products by aisle, and features categories such as healthy and organic products, seasonal selections and inspiration for quick, easy meals.

Shipt uses its own community of shoppers who hand-pick every item for delivery as soon as one hour after the order is placed. Leading up to the launch, Shipt plans to grow its network of shoppers, who are responsible for ensuring complete, accurate fulfillments of each order.
