US: Meijer Introduces Home Delivery Service

The Meijer supermarket chain has begun offering home deliveries, via a partnership with on-demand grocery delivery service Shipt.

The chain is currently offering deliveries in the Grand Rapids, Fort Wayne and Indianapolis regions, and will roll it out to other major markets in Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky. Meiijer is offering 1-hour deliveries seven days a week, with the exception of some holidays.

The Shipt delivery service is membership-based, with either annual or monthly options. For $99 a year, Shipt members receive unlimited free grocery deliveries on all orders over $35. After signing up for Shipt, members can shop online for a large selection of Meijer groceries, produce, and everyday essentials including baby, health and beauty products. A Shipt shopper will hand pick their items and deliver them after the order is placed.
