Big Lots is adding delivery options through a partnership with Shipt.
Shipt’s same-day services will support the delivery of all mid- and small-sized goods, such as home décor and small furniture like chairs and desks, toys and paper products, while supplementing the Columbus, Ohio-based retailer’s existing curbside, BOPIS and same-day operations for bulkier items, such as large indoor and patio furniture.
“We’re pleased to join Shipt’s marketplace to offer customers an additional solution for all last-minute needs,” said Bruce Thorn, president and CEO of Big Lots. “This partnership expands our ability to provide exceptional deals on top brands, surprising finds and best-in-class service to a new community of customers via same-day delivery.”
“We couldn’t be more excited to welcome Big Lots to the Shipt family,” added Rina Hurst, chief business officer at Shipt. “We often say we bring the store to your door, and we’re taking that even further with the addition of Big Lots’ robust assortment of home goods, groceries, apparel, beauty products, everyday essentials and even small furniture to Shipt’s marketplace.”
