Same-day shopping and delivery company Shipt today announced a new partnership with a leading home discount retailer, Big Lots, providing a new way for customers to shop for bargains on home goods, groceries, home decor and more from 1,000 stores across the country. The addition of Big Lots is the latest example of Shipt’s strategic growth as a multi-vertical marketplace, now offering same-day delivery for everyday essentials from 160 retailers.
“We couldn’t be more excited to welcome Big Lots to the Shipt family,” said Rina Hurst, Chief Business Officer at Shipt. “We often say we bring the store to your door, and we’re taking that even further with the addition of Big Lots’ robust assortment of home goods, groceries, apparel, beauty products, everyday essentials and even small furniture to Shipt’s marketplace. This partnership builds upon our efforts to make Shipt a one-stop-shop for all the shopping needs of our customers. With such a unique and diverse collection of merchandise, Big Lots is perfect for Shoppers who pride themselves on delivering a high-quality experience.”
More retailers are now looking to implement a diversified e-commerce approach. The partnership between Shipt and Big Lots demonstrates how stores can leverage multiple solutions across their fulfillment strategies. Shipt’s same-day services will support the delivery of all mid- and small-sized goods, such as toys, paper products and small furniture like chairs and desks, while supplementing the mass retailers’ existing curbside, BOPIS, and same-day operations for bulkier items, such as large indoor and patio furniture.
“We’re pleased to join Shipt’s marketplace to offer customers an additional solution for all last-minute needs,” said Bruce Thorn, president and CEO of Big Lots. “This partnership expands our ability to provide exceptional deals on top brands, surprising finds and best-in-class service to a new community of customers via same-day delivery.”
Starting today, customers can place orders from more than 1,000 Big Lots stores nationwide, powered by Shipt’s trusted community of 300,000 personal Shipt Shoppers.
