ALEXANDRIA, Va.—Shipt has joined forces with 7-Eleven to bring customers a variety of snacks, drinks and convenience products, according to a news release.
“7-Eleven strives to be the first choice for convenience. Anytime, anywhere,” said Raghu Mahadevan, 7-Eleven senior vice president and chief digital officer. (Mahadevan was a presenter at the 2022 NACS Leadership Forum in Miami—look for complete coverage in the April issue of NACS Magazine.)
“Expanding our delivery portfolio with Shipt allows shoppers access to more than 3,000 7-Eleven products, including groceries, over-the-counter medicines, household goods and a range of food and beverage options, in as soon as an hour,” Mahadevan said.
Shipt also has partnered with Walgreens to provide customers with over-the-counter medications, beauty, personal care and household products.
“People across the country depend on Walgreens for their health and wellness needs and everyday essentials, and we look forward to our brand reaching even more customers through our collaboration with Shipt,” said Stefanie Kruse, vice president of digital commerce and omnichannel, Walgreens. “Shipt demonstrates a clear commitment to service and convenience, and we are excited to offer their above-and-beyond approach to personal shopping and delivery to our customers.”
The partnerships increase Shipt’s store coverage across the U.S. by more than 40% and represents the most stores ever added to Shipt’s marketplace at one time. 7-Eleven will be launching nationwide with nearly 6,450 items and Walgreens with over 25,000 available from more than 6,303 locations. To drive adoption in markets, Shipt is working with both retailers on unique customer promotions.

Shipt brings to each of these relationships our personal approach to service and a differentiation of the high-quality experience our shoppers deliver to each and every customer.”
