Walgreens and 7-Eleven have joined the Shipt delivery network.
“We’re thrilled to welcome 7-Eleven and Walgreens to our dynamic marketplace of retailers,” Shipt Chief Business Officer Rina Hurst said. “Located on corners of nearly every major market in America, these two powerhouse brands are incredible complements to our marketplace, bringing customers, even more, variety and product categories while driving added convenience for each brands’ shoppers.”
Target purchased Shipt in 2017, and the Minneapolis-based retailer has been Shipt’s primary customer. The addition of the new retailers on the marketplace increases Shipt’s store coverage across the country by more than 40 percent and represents the most stores ever added to Shipt’s marketplace at one time. Walgreens will be launching nationwide with over 25,000 items available from more than 6,303 locations and 7-Eleven with nearly 6,450.
“7-Eleven strives to be the first choice for convenience. Anytime, anywhere,” 7-Eleven Senior Vice President and Chief Digital Officer Raghu Mahadevan said. “Expanding our delivery portfolio with Shipt allows shoppers access to more than 3,000 7-Eleven products, including groceries, over-the-counter medicines, household goods and a range of food and beverage options, in as soon as an hour.”
Since 2020, Shipt has tripled its network of shoppers and doubled its retail partners to offer same-day delivery. And in 2021, Shipt experienced its largest service area expansion in three years, adding nearly 1,000 more store locations and more than two million households to its coverage area.
“People across the country depend on Walgreens for their health and wellness needs and everyday essentials, and we look forward to our brand reaching even more customers through our collaboration with Shipt,” said Stefanie Kruse, vice president of digital commerce and omnichannel at Walgreens. “Shipt demonstrates a clear commitment to service and convenience, and we are excited to offer their above-and-beyond approach to personal shopping and delivery to our customers.”
