Throughout the month of August, Shipt launched on-demand grocery delivery in Tampa Bay and South Florida. As a result, thousands of busy Floridians have eliminated trips to the grocery store and started rediscovering the concept of “free time” – something many of us lost in our early 20s. Now, we’re ready to bring that same sense of rediscovery (something we call#ShiptLife) to our friends in Orlando.
As we prepared for our Orlando launch, members of the Shipt team flew down from our Birmingham headquarters to meet with our new Shoppers and get everything set up to launch grocery delivery. Rather than holding the meet-up in a monotone hotel lobby, our team looked for a spot that would allow Shoppers to mingle and experience the Orlando vibe. We landed at Cask & Larder which proved to be the perfect spot for our lively group. During the meet-up, C&L was full of green t-shirt-clad Shoppers who were networking, asking questions and learning how to select a perfect avocado.
Since Shipt on-demand grocery delivery launched in early 2015, demand for the service has sky-rocketed. As we’ve heard from many of our customers, life can be busy and most people simply don’t have enough time to worry about interrupting their day to stand in line at the grocery store. That’s why we promote a simpler life, a life that we call #ShiptLife.
So, take a deep breath, Orlando. We’re here and we’re ready to eliminate trips to the grocery store. Beginning today, Shipt members in Orlando will be able to use the Shipt app to select their grocery items and schedule deliveries at their convenience. Memberships cost $14/month or $99/year and include access to the Shipt app and unlimited deliveries for orders over $35.
If you missed the shopper launch party, don’t fret! We are still looking for a few good shoppers to join our team. If you would like to join the Orlando Shopper team, please submit an application here.
Take back your free time, Orlando! We can’t wait to see you relaxing soon! 🙂
