Shipt Launches Same-Day Delivery From Petco

Membership-based service launches new category of pet essentials to nearly 70 million households across the country

Shipt, a leading online grocery marketplace, today 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. This partnership will give nearly 70 million households access to Petco delivery in as soon 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. To celebrate the announcement, new Shipt members who sign up before April 18 will receive an annual membership for $49 (regularly $99).

“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, chief executive officer, 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.” 

Founded in 2014 in Birmingham, Alabama, Shipt is committed to simplifying its members’ lives by offering a 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 of more than $35. 

“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.”
