BIRMINGHAM, AL — Shipt, an online grocery marketplace, announced that it is launching same-day delivery of food, grooming and health products and supplies for pets from nearly 1,300 Petco stores across the country.

The service was set to begin April 18. The partnership gives nearly 70 million households access to Petco delivery in as soon as one hour across more than 200 total markets.

“At Shipt, we make shopping more convenient for our members by providing access to all their household and grocery needs, when they need it,” said Kelly Caruso, CEO of Shipt. “We’re thrilled to now offer the same convenient service for every member of the family, including pets. 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.”

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, which costs $99, 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, vice president 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.”
