Hispanic grocer Cardenas Markets has partnered with same-day delivery service company Shipt of Birmingham, Ala., to offer rapid delivery in as little as one hour.
"Shipt's people-first philosophy and Cardenas Markets' mission to connect cultures and communities make our partnership a perfect fit," said Rina Hurst, chief business officer at Shipt, in a statement. "Shipt shoppers are known for going above and beyond to get your order just right—and we're thrilled that Cardenas Markets customers can now count on our trusted network of personal shoppers to deliver authentic and fresh ingredients."
For more than 40 years, Cardenas Markets "has provided fresh and authentic products while bringing people together to celebrate life, culture, and family," said Adam Salgado, chief marketing officer for Cardenas Markets in Ontario, Calif. "Our partnership with Shipt demonstrates our commitment to adapting with our customers' shifting preferences and brings the celebration from Cardenas Markets stores to our customers' doors," Salgado added.
From freshly baked bolillos and tortillas made daily from scratch to pastries, produce and fresh meat, Cardenas customers' favorite items are now available for convenient delivery, with Shipt personal shoppers "selecting the best cuts of specialty seasoned seafood, chicken, beef or pork and the ripest seasonal fruits and vegetables from the USA and Latin America," according to the company. Shipt is celebrating the partnership by offering customers the chance to receive a $10 credit with their first Cardenas Markets purchase of $50 or more on the Shipt Marketplace through Sept. 14.
An independently operated, wholly owned subsidiary of Target Corp., Shipt provides personal shopping and delivery to 80% of households in more than 5,000 U.S. cities, according to the company.
