Shipt-Petco partnership offers pet owners same-day delivery
On April 10, 2019 online grocery marketplace Shipt announced it will begin same-day delivery of food, grooming and health products and supplies for pets from nearly 1,300 Petco stores across the country beginning April 18. The partnership is expected to give nearly 70 million households access to same-day Petco delivery—in as little as one hour—across more than 200 total markets nationwide.
Shipt members can determine if delivery is available in their area by visiting shipt.com/Petco and new Shipt members who sign up before April 18 will receive an annual membership for $49.
“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, CEO, Shipt. “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,” Caruso said.
“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, VP and General Manager of eCommerce for Petco. “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,” Benaissa said.
