Grocery delivery comes to Wilmington

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — You will soon be able to grocery shop at Whole Foods and Publix from the comfort of your own home.

Grocery delivery service ‘Shipt’ launches in Wilmington next week. The company announced in a release that service begins in the city Tuesday, April 4. Those who sign up as annual members before then will receive $25 off their first purchase. After that, receive unlimited delivery on orders of $35 or more.

Annual memberships are $99. Users shop groceries, choose delivery time, and pay through the Shipt app.

At this time delivery will only be available in Wilmington from Publix and Whole Foods and members must be home for deliveryz.

Shipt was founded in 2014 as an alternative to in-store grocery shopping while providing the full selection of what is available in the store. Items are listed by aisle and feature categories such as healthy, organic, seasonal, and inspiration for quick recipes.

“Our app is setup like the aisles at the grocery store. We can go into our smartphone app or you can go into the web app and either search for what you’re looking for for or browse. So just as you would walk up and down the aisles at the grocery store, that’s how you’d browse the aisles by category,” Kelly Guin, spokeswoman for Wilmington Shipt, said.

The company is also looking for people in the community to be Shipt Shoppers. They are responsible for ensuring orders are complete and accurate but receive extensive background checks.

“We believe in an unparalleled level of excellent customer service. And that’s what we hope to provide to all of our members through these shoppers,” Guin said.

Wilmington will be the 37th market Shipt has launched in.
