Shipt is partnering with Times Supermarkets to bring same-day delivery to three Hawaiian Islands, including the Kīhei and Lahaina areas of Maui.
Shipt also offers delivery on Maui of products from Target, Petco and Safeway.
Shipt membership-based service launches for the first time on Kauaʻi, and the company expands same-day delivery options in Honolulu and on Maui.
As of July 25, products from Times Supermarkets are available in as soon as one hour to families and visitors in the Kīhei and Lahaina areas on Maui, the broader Honolulu area, and on Kauaʻi. To celebrate the announcement, new Shipt members in Hawaiʻi will receive a four-week free trial.
“Times Supermarkets has been a staple of convenience for Hawaiian residents and visitors since it opened 70 years ago,” said Kelly Caruso, chief executive officer, Shipt. “Partnering with Times gives us the opportunity to provide an additional layer of ease by bringing local produce, locally made products, and prepared foods to members in Hawaiʻi.”
Founded in 2014, Shipt is committed to simplifying its members’ lives “by offering a new, convenient same-day shopping experience.” Shipt’s marketplace gives members the ability to browse, search and shop the in-store assortment of products online. Members can note preferences, choose a one-hour delivery window and pay for their order within the app.
Shipt representatives say their “expert team of shoppers takes care of selecting, bagging and delivering the items.” The annual membership grants access to free, unlimited delivery on orders of more than $35.
“We are proud of our strong legacy in Hawaiʻi and committed to providing our customers across the state with a convenient shopping experience,” said Chris Borden, president, Times Supermarkets. “Same-day delivery via Shipt enables our customers to access our wide assortment of products with the press of a button, from a number of Times’ locations.”
Leading up to the launch, Shipt also plans to add to its network of shoppers in Hawaiʻi. To apply to be a Shipt shopper, visit Shipt.com and click “Get Paid to Shop.”
