Michigan-based supermarket chain Meijer will begin home delivery on Sept. 15 in the southeastern portion of the state, according to the Detroit Free Press.
The service will be an expansion of Meijer’s curbside pickup program. It will initially be available in areas close to 25 designated stores in the Detroit metro.
Meijer is partnering with Shipt to offer the service. Consumers will need a Shipt membership, which is $99 per year as well as pay a $7 delivery fee on orders of less than $35. Orders totaling more than $35 carry no additional fee.
"For us, it really is about offering convenience to customers," says Art Sebastian, Meijer's director of digital shopping, said Thursday. "When you think about how long it takes to shop every week — every 10 days or so — we're giving them back the gift of time."
