Rite Aid is working with Shipt to bring same-day delivery of health-and-wellness products to its stores. With the partnership, products from more than 2,000 stores across the chain’s 17-state footprint are available for same-day delivery via the Shipt marketplace.
"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."
With the partnership, customers will be able to purchase more than 20,000 products from Rite Aid through Shipt.
"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 at 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."
The partnership is kicking off with a promotion that runs through Aug. 12, offering $10 off of a $50 purchase for their first Rite Aid order on Shipt. Once an order is placed, customers can schedule their delivery, which will be fulfilled in as little as one hour, according to the companies.
