US on-demand delivery company Shipt has agreed a new partnership with health and wellness retail chain GNC to offer same-day delivery of GNC’s products across the country.
The partnership with Shipt will allow GNC to reach to customers who may not otherwise be able to get to its stores. Now GNC customers in the US cities with a GNC store will be able to order their health and wellness products and have them delivered within an hour. Shipt works into over 5,000 US cities and claims to be able to reach over 80% of the US population.
“Our vision at Shipt is to continuously identify new, innovative ways to simplify lives and give customers valuable time back to focus on what matters most,” said Rina Hurst, Chief Business Officer at Shipt. “The partnership with GNC allows us to serve more people in more ways – we’re able to deliver on a need when many are struggling on how to deal with stress, weight management, sleepless nights and more. We’re in the midst of an exciting evolution to a multi-vertical, multi-retailer delivery service and are thrilled to have GNC as part of the Shipt family.”
The order process is through the Shipt mobile device app where customers can choose to buy from GNC.
“The pandemic has really done a number on our bodies – both physically and mentally,” said Josh Burris, President, GNC Holdings, LLC. “This year in particular many are finding it difficult to stick to their resolutions. By tapping into the infrastructure Shipt has in place, we can help people re-set their goals and offer our customers same-day delivery as they continue on their wellness journey.”
