Meijer expands inventory of items available for home-delivery service
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Thousands of general merchandise items have been added to Meijer’s store-to-door home delivery service in anticipation of the holiday season ahead. The latest additions feature the most in-demand toys along with wrapping paper, artificial trees and Christmas decorations.
Other options available to consumers that continue to be featured are fresh produce, groceries and general merchandise items that have been hand-picked by Shipt shoppers from local Meijer stores. Those include electronics such as TVs, tablets, headphones, drones and gaming systems.
"We've had tremendous success delivering groceries to our customers across the Midwest, so we are very pleased to offer them the convenience of having their holiday gifts delivered to their doorstep as well," Meijer president and CEO Rick Keyes said. "Whether you are looking for a turkey, toys and gifts or even decorations, our brick–and-mortar stores combined with a personal shopping solution provides something for everyone's holiday shopping needs."
This joint venture between Meijer and Shipt has expanded the service to more than 200 stores in just 148 days and is now on track to make more than 1 million deliveries by year's end. Meijer also has provided home delivery service members the ability to earn mPerks Rewards which can be redeemed in store, while the Shipt app provides consumers access to sales on hundreds of items each week.
The company’s store-to-door service is available for the yearly fee of $99. Unlimited deliveries are free for orders more than $35, and a $7 delivery fee is added to any orders under $35.
