Just in time for the holiday season, Birmingham-based Shipt announced this week that it’s adding another 50,000 shoppers to its national network. This is in addition to the 100,000 shoppers Shipt announced it would be onboarding nationwide in October.
Over the past six months, Shipt has experienced fast-paced growth, doubling its shopper base, expanding its retailer footprint and growing its membership and customer base.
Shipt Growth nearly 280%
According to a story in Progressive Grocer, Shipt deliveries grew by nearly 280% in its third quarter of 2020, and same-day order pickup grew by more than 50%. The company also formed a 12-state partnership with Korean-American grocer H Mart that gives more than 10 million households access to same-day delivery of a variety of Asian products.
The growth in online delivery service companies like Shipt coincides with the Center for Disease Control’s national plea to Americans to restrict travel and stay home this Thanksgiving season because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Shipt Shoppers are serving customers with care and making their lives easier during an unprecedented holiday season,” said Shipt CEO Kelly Caruso. “We’re excited to add even more shoppers to the community and reward them for their work in helping American families prepare for holiday meals, delight loved ones with gifts and everything in between.”

Shipt is available to 80% of American households and serves 5,000 cities in the U.S. The company is recruiting shoppers nationwide. People who become shoppers over the next few days are eligible for the company’s holiday cash bonus during November 25-30, as well as any local incentives.
