Shipt Partners with Fresh Thyme to Bring Same-Day Delivery to the Midwest

Shipt has announced it is expanding its offerings by partnering with Fresh Thyme Farmers Market. This new partnership will allow people in 30 different Metro areas across the Midwest. See the specific 30 Metro areas at the link here, which is Fresh Thyme's website.
Michigan residents in the Detroit, Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, and Lansing metro areas have also been given access to same-day delivery of beer and wine from Fresh Thyme Farmers Market. Members need to be at least 21 years old to order or accept alcohol deliveries, and identification must be presented at the time of delivery.
"Fresh Thyme Farmers Market is a staple for healthy, convenient and budget-friendly living," said Joe Manning, Chief Business Officer of Shipt, in a Shipt press release. "Partnering with Fresh Thyme Farmers Market gives us the opportunity to provide an additional layer of ease by bringing fresh and healthy goods to members across the Midwest."
Shoppers also now have the possibility to pay per delivery with a one-time fee, with no obligations or commitment. Additionally, they can order same-day delivery from Fresh Thyme as much or as little as needed thanks to this announcement.
"We are thrilled to announce our partnership with Shipt," said Ramesh Reddy, Chief Information Officer of Fresh Thyme Farmers Market, in the same Shipt news release. "Their delivery solution provides a convenience; one our customers are looking for in their shopping experience."
Fresh Thyme has worked to keep its customers and staff safe during the pandemic. The brand has encouraged customers to practice social distancing, staying six feet away from other shoppers. Fresh Thyme has also added social distancing floor markers to show the proper distance between customers. Plexiglass shields have been added to checkouts as well to protect customers and staff during their transactions. It is also working to limit the number of people in the store at one time and asks customers to limit the number of people on each trip.
Then, the brand has announced multiple measures for staff. It is conducting daily health screenings and giving temperature checks and giving them masks and gloves to use while working. These measures include:

  • "A pay continuation program that allows those who are quarantined or who test positive for COVID-19 to stay home with pay.
  • Free online COVID-19 screenings from a board-certified doctor for all team members.
  • A backup care reimbursement program to offset the unexpected costs of unplanned care for children or adults."
