SMITH'S LAUNCHES GROCERY HOME DELIVERY SERVICE
Locally- based PigeonShip Selected as Delivery Partner
Smith's Food & Drug Stores has launched grocery delivery to customers' homes using PigeonShip, a Utah-based delivery service provider.
Utilizing Smith's online grocery ordering service, ClickList, which offers more than 40,000 items from desktop or mobile devices, customers may now also choose home delivery by PigeonShip as an option to curbside store pick up in two test market areas. The grocery delivery service will begin on June 15 from Smith's Marketplace in Saratoga Springs and on June 29 from Smith's Marketplace in Springville.
PigeonShip is a dynamic hyper-local same day delivery service, focusing on quality control and customer satisfaction, but with enormous flexibility and reach to accommodate both business and consumer demands. Although locally founded, PigeonShip's unique model is built for scale and can be operational in any State.
"Smith's ClickList store pickup has been a huge hit with our customers for its convenience and now the home delivery service brings that convenience factor to a whole new level," said Marsha Gilford, Southwest Regional Director, Corporate Affairs.
How does home grocery delivery work? A customer goes to http://www.smithsfoodanddrug.com/ClickList and selects grocery items to build their shopping cart. Once the customer has completed their online shopping list, they choose a convenient home delivery time. Customers may use the same day pick-up at the store or choose the home delivery option with the same four-hour window. Home delivery is $11.95 for each trip, with no minimum or maximum order required. The customer will track their groceries en route through an app or email link and will know the precise time the order will arrive. The driver will then carry the groceries to the door.
PigeonShip was founded in Utah, but operates in other States. Their ability to have items delivered same day and on demand has made it very popular amongst business verticals such as groceries, payroll, legal documents, floral, pharmaceuticals, classifieds, and any other business whose products need same day delivery. PigeonShip utilizes "already going there" drivers wanting to make some extra income, and connects senders who are looking for a fast, cheap and reliable delivery service. PigeonShip is the first pickup and delivery service that offers faster, smarter and hassle-free item or package delivery. Visit https://www.pigeonship.com or https://www.facebook.com/PigeonShip
Smith's Food & Drug Stores operates 140 stores in seven western states including 53 stores in Utah. Smith's charitable giving, in partnership with 18,000 associates, generous customers and suppliers, totaled $5.7 million in cash and food products to Utah organizations in 2016.
