New App Delivers Publix Groceries to your Door

Finally an app has been developed that for those that either dislike going to the grocery store or just need to save some time.

It’s called Shipt and they’re launching a Publix grocery delivery service in South Florida on August 18. According to the Tampa Bay Times, after their launch last week, they couldn’t even keep up with demand with their app showing service was unavailable in parts of the city.

The service costs $49 per year if you sign up during their current early bird promotion. In return, shoppers get unlimited deliveries on orders over $35.  After that, the regular price is $99 a year or $14 per month. Orders under $35 are subject to a $7 delivery fee.

Here’s what you do once you register: shop, pay and schedule deliveries through the mobile app on your  iOS and Android device. If they don’t have the item you are looking for you can even fill out a “special request”.  The Shipt website says that all Publix items will be available for same day delivery in as soon as one hour to your home in Tamarac.  All their workers are contracted just like Uber and Lyft drivers making $15 to $20 per order and Shipt is not affiliated with Publix.

    This company marks up products from 15% to 80%. They do not freely disclose that their prices are higher, and they also hide that they don’t honor Publix sales or BOGOs. They act as if they are a Publix delivery service, even though this article rightly discloses that they are not associated with Publix. The Tampa Bay Times has been a big cheerleader for this company and has assisted in promoting the lies. In one article Times writer Justine Griffin quoted Publix spokesman Brian West as saying “We are aware of Shipt and are reaching out to them,” it took her a week to correct the statement to include “However, we have no partnership with these services, so any use of the Publix name is without our consent.”. She also made a video for Shipt with a test order. During the delivery, which was not available until the following day, items were damaged including ice cream being freezer burned and having a hole in the package as “a smooth test run”.
