Shipt customers will now have better access to own brand products from Walgreens and 7-Eleven, as the delivery service has partnered with the retailers.

First covered by Store Brands’ sister publication Progressive Grocer, Shipt customers can now order thousands of over-the-counter medications, beauty, personal care, household, and convenience items from drug store chain Walgreens, in addition to snacks, drinks and household essentials from convenience store giant 7-Eleven.

 With these launches, Shipt now has more than 140 retail partnerships. The new partnerships follow the appointment of Kamau Washington as Shipt’s new CEO.

“We’re thrilled to welcome 7-Eleven and Walgreens to our dynamic marketplace of retailers,” said Rina Hurst, chief business officer at Shipt. “Located on corners of nearly every major market in America, these two powerhouse brands are incredible complements to our marketplace, bringing customers even more variety and product categories while driving added convenience for each brands’ shoppers. 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.”

The partnerships with Walgreens and 7-Eleven have resulted in the most stores ever added to Shipt’s marketplace at one time. Walgreens will launch nationally with more than 25,000 items available from 6,303-plus locations, and 7-Eleven with nearly 6,450. To encourage adoption in the retailers’ various markets, Shipt is collaborating with both Walgreens and 7-Eleven on unique customer promotions.

“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, Walgreens’ VP of digital commerce and omnichannel. “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.”

“7-Eleven strives to be the first choice for convenience. Anytime, anywhere,” said Raghu Mahadevan, 7-Eleven’s SVP and chief digital officer. “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."
