Home specialty retailer Kirkland’s is launching an in-home delivery service that will provide last-mile delivery and light assembly to consumers. 

The program was tested in more than 25 major markets in June 2022 and will be rolled out across the lower 48 states by the end of July. To offer the service, Kirkland’s has partnered with Ryder System, which offers a host of services including supply chain, dedicated transportation and fleet management solutions.

"Launching our new in-home delivery program through an industry-leading partner like Ryder is a pivotal milestone in the transformation of Kirkland's Home," said Steve "Woody" Woodward, president and CEO of Kirkland's Home. "As we continue to evolve our merchandise mix into high-quality designs with a value-centric mindset, it was necessary to upgrade our logistics capabilities and make it easier for customers to enjoy our products."

With nearly 90 years of experience, Ryder is trusted by Fortune 500 companies and emerging companies alike to consistently deliver industry-leading transportation and supply chain services to its customers. Ryder's customer-centric solutions include custom self-scheduling and notifications, two-person delivery, real-time tracking and status updates, placement and installation, and haul-away services
