Meijer Passes Half A Million Home Deliveries Mark

Meijer said it has surpassed 500,000 home deliveries and is on pace to see more than a million deliveries made from its stores by year-end.

Since the service with Shipt launched in Detroit last September, the company has expanded delivery to more than 200 stores. The store-to-door service now is available in Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Illinois, Wisconsin and Kentucky where Shipt shoppers hand-pick items from local Meijer stores for home delivery.

Meijer doesn’t engage in online commerce beyond the Shipt delivery and its own curbside service. Still, the company noted that delivery has been popular with customers in part due to Meijer’s success in combining a digital shopping solution with stores.

“As e-commerce continues to change the way people shop, we are proud to bring home delivery to the Midwest and innovate the way people shop our stores,” said Rick Keyes, Meijer president and CEO. “Our goal was to quickly bring a high level of convenience to as many customers as possible, so surpassing a half million deliveries is a great start as we continue enhancing this personalized customer-first experience.”
