SHIPT LAUNCHES GROCERY DELIVERY ON GULF COAST App-based grocery delivery service expands to 30A, Destin, Fort Walton Beach, Panama City and Panama City Beach PANAMA CITY, Fla. (Feb. 18, 2016) – Shipt, an app-based grocery delivery service, today announced that it will begin delivering fresh groceries from local Publix® stores to Gulf Coast residents beginning on March 3, 2016. The coverage area will include the 30A, Destin, Fort Walton Beach, Panama City and Panama City Beach areas. “Grocery shopping is never at the top of someone’s to-do list, especially when enjoying a relaxing day at the beach. Our members who use Shipt in other cities came to us asking for grocery delivery to the Gulf Coast as an added convenience while vacationing,” said Bill Smith, founder and CEO of Shipt. “We’re thrilled to expand our grocery delivery service to the Gulf Coast in time for spring break, and look forward to simplifying the lives both of full-time residents and vacationers in the area.” Through the Shipt app, members create grocery lists, note any preferences or substitutions, choose a one-hour delivery window for their groceries to be delivered and pay for their order. Shipt connects members with local Shipt Shoppers to shop at the nearest grocery store, hand pick their items and deliver them to the member’s home or office as soon as one hour after the order. The Shipt app allows access to all of the items available in the traditional grocery store, including perishable, deli and bakery items. The app features sections designed to simplify members’ lives, including health-focused sections, seasonal sections and a “Dinner Tonight” section with ingredients for quick, easy meals. The company will hire additional shoppers along the Gulf Coast to select high-quality groceries and communicate closely with the member to ensure complete, accurate fulfillment of each order. Shoppers set their own flexible schedules and can shop orders as their daily routine permits. To apply to be a Shipt Shopper, visit Shipt.com and click “Be a Shopper”.
