Union, N.J.— Through new partnerships with Shipt and Instacart, Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. has launched same-day delivery at Bed Bath & Beyond and buybuy BABY. Same-day delivery follows the successful introduction earlier this year of Buy-Online-Pickup-In-Store (BOPIS) and contactless curbside pickup, and will enable customers to shop their favorite products online and have them delivered to their doorstep within hours of purchase.
The same-day delivery service is available at a flat rate fee of $4.99 for orders over $39, providing an easy, convenient and affordable option. Customers in eligible zip codes can shop online for products that are available for same-day delivery at bedbathandbeyond.com and buybuybaby.com. Once the order is placed, a personal shopper from the company’s same-day delivery partner, Shipt, will pick up the item at the local store and deliver to the customer’s home. Delivery cut-off times will vary based on location and zip code.
“We’ve been delighted with the strong customer response to the introduction of BOPIS and curbside pickup this year, and the addition of same-day delivery provides another simple and cost-effective way to shop with certainty from the comfort of your own home this holiday season,” says Rafeh Masood, chief digital officer.
Same-day delivery service will also be conveniently available on the Shipt and Instacart websites and mobile apps, for customers shopping for their homes, baby or holiday essentials. As two of the leading delivery services and marketplaces today, both Instacart and Shipt each reach over 80% of American households. Existing Shipt customers will still receive free delivery on all orders over $35 when shopping directly through Shipt platforms.
Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. and subsidiaries is an omnichannel retailer that sells a wide assortment of domestic merchandise and home furnishings.
