Shipt Launching Grocery Delivery in St. Louis

Member-based grocery delivery company partners with Dierbergs

Shipt, the fastest growing online grocery marketplace, announced today that it is partnering with locally owned Dierbergs Markets to begin delivering fresh groceries to St. Louis-area residents starting Sept. 14, 2017.

Founded in 2014, Shipt is committed to simplifying its members’ lives by offering a new, convenient grocery shopping experience. Delivering grocery stores’ full selection of items, Shipt’s marketplace gives customers the ability to browse their local stores’ aisles online in addition to featured categories such as healthy ingredients, seasonal selections, and inspiration for quick, easy meals. Shipt members will have access to tens of thousands of Dierbergs’ in-store products, including fresh and prepared foods.

“Dierbergs was an obvious choice to partner with as we launch Shipt delivery throughout St. Louis,” said Bill Smith, founder and CEO of Shipt. “Their longstanding commitment to their local communities and focus on providing quality products to their customers perfectly complements Shipt’s own emphasis on creating a superior customer experience.”

At launch, 800,000 households in the St. Louis metro area will have access to groceries from Dierbergs Markets delivered by Shipt:

  • How it works – Through the Shipt app, members select their grocery items, note any preferences, choose a one-hour delivery window, and pay for their order.
  • Membership – Prior to launch, annual Shipt memberships will be available for $49 (regularly $99) and members will receive $25 off their first order.
  • Delivery – All members have access to unlimited delivery, free on all orders over $35. Orders can be placed as early as one hour before delivery.
  • Hours – Shipt will deliver from 23 St. Louis area Dierbergs stores between 7am and 11pm.
  • To sign up – To sign up for Shipt and learn more about the service, visit online at Shipt.com/Dierbergs.

“Our business has operated continuously for 163 years,” said Greg Dierberg, fourth-generation grocer and president of Dierbergs Markets. “That longevity speaks to our company’s ability to innovate and grow with the community. Partnering with Shipt’s app-based grocery marketplace is an example of us evolving to give customers added convenience and another way to shop our stores. This is definitely going to be a unique experience for the St. Louis shopper.”

Leading up to the launch, Shipt plans to hire 500 shoppers, who are responsible for ensuring complete, accurate fulfillments of each order. To apply to be a Shipt Shopper, visit Shipt.com and click “Get Paid to Shop.”
