Shipt and Harris Teeter Expand in Six Metros this November

Membership-based grocery delivery service expands partnership with Harris Teeter across three states and Washington, D.C.

Shipt, a leading online grocery delivery marketplace, and Harris Teeter, one of the South Atlantic’s most beloved retailers, are celebrating over two and a half years of partnership this November. Today, Shipt is expanding same-day grocery delivery service from Harris Teeter across Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C. This announcement grants access to same-day delivery from Harris Teeter to three new metro areas, while expanding service to three existing metro areas on Nov. 1:

  • Delaware: Millsboro and Selbyville
  • Maryland: Baltimore and St. Mary’s Peninsula
  • Virginia: Charlottesville and Hampton Roads 
  • Washington D.C. 

Shipt and Harris Teeter currently work together in 12 markets, with additional expansions planned for the Southeast region this fall. Following this expansion, Shipt and Harris Teeter will provide more than 2.5 million households with access to delivery of their favorite Harris Teeter products in as soon as one hour. Harris Teeter was one of Shipt’s first partners in early 2016, when the two companies launched delivery service in The Triad. 

Founded in 2014 in Birmingham, Alabama, Shipt is committed to simplifying its members’ lives by offering a new, convenient same-day shopping experience. Shipt’s marketplace gives members the ability to browse, search and shop the in-store assortment of products online. Members can note preferences, choose a one-hour delivery window and pay for their order, all within the app. Shipt's expert team of shoppers takes care of selecting, bagging and delivering the items. The annual membership grants access to free, unlimited delivery on orders over $35.

“Harris Teeter offers quality produce and everyday essentials at affordable prices, complementing Shipt’s model of hospitality and accessibility –– something our members notice and appreciate, ” said Bill Smith, founder and chief executive officer of Shipt. “We value our long standing partnership with Harris Teeter, and look forward to continuing to bring beloved Harris Teeter products to the doorsteps of our members at the press of a button.”

"Harris Teeter strives to create an incredible place to shop, and with partners like Shipt, we can not only expand our delivery options, but also demonstrate our relentless commitment to improving the overall grocery shopping experience," said Danna Robinson, communication manager for Harris Teeter. "We look forward to continuing to test and learn through our partnership with Shipt."

Leading up to the launch, Shipt plans to add to its network of shoppers across each metro to be part of the team responsible for ensuring complete, accurate fulfillment of each order. To apply to be a Shipt shopper, visit Shipt.com and click “Get Paid to Shop.
