BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Aug. 5, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Same-day delivery service Shipt and Rite Aid (NYSE: RAD) today announced a partnership to bring same-day delivery of health and wellness products to Rite Aid's retail footprint across 17 states. Customers can order from more than 2,000 Rite Aid locations through the Shipt marketplace, with delivery to their door in as soon as one hour.
Over the last year, both companies have seen same-day delivery offerings transition from a luxury to a convenience to a must-have for consumers. Whether shopping for cold and flu medicines, vitamins, beauty staples, personal care, or snacks and beverages, customers have access to more than 20,000 products available at Rite Aid through Shipt.
"Both Shipt and Rite Aid recognize the importance of meeting the ever-changing needs of our customers and exceeding their expectations," said Rina Hurst, chief business officer at Shipt. "We're thrilled to offer Rite Aid customers access to a community of Shipt Shoppers, who are committed to going above and beyond to get their order exactly right. Shipt continues to evolve as a multi-vertical delivery service that can serve as a one-stop-shop regardless of a customer's need, and Rite Aid is a valued partner in that journey."
"As part of our ongoing RxEvolution, continuing to bring to life the 'new Rite Aid' is paramount – and that includes offering consumers exciting new ways to shop. Our partnership with Shipt brings another level of convenience to the Rite Aid customer experience," said Katie Finnegan, chief customer experience and e-commerce officer, Rite Aid. "As consumer preferences continue to evolve, offering options is important, and we'll continue exploring ways to make it as easy as possible for our customers to get the items they need to keep their families healthy, happy and thriving."
To kick off the partnership, starting today through Aug. 12, customers will receive $10 off when they spend $50 on their first Rite Aid order. New customers can sign up and learn about availability in their area by visiting shipt.com/rite-aid or by downloading the Shipt app. After building their Rite Aid order, customers will schedule their delivery, and a Shipt Shopper responsible for fulfilling and ensuring accurate delivery will bring it directly to their door in as soon as one hour.
