Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. launched same day delivery for its Bed Bath and buybuy BABY banners Tuesday ahead of the 2020 holiday season, and after the successful introduction earlier this year of buy-online-pickup-in-store and contactless curbside pickup.
The same day delivery service fro the Union-based retailer is available at a flat rate fee of $4.99 for orders over $39. Customers in eligible ZIP codes can shop online for products that are available for same day delivery at Bed Bath‘s and buybuy BABY‘s websites, and select the option for it at checkout.
A personal shopper from Shipt, one of the company’s new same day delivery partners, will pick up the item at the local store and deliver it to the customer’s home.
Delivery cut-off times will vary based on location and ZIP code.
“At a time when our homes have become the center of our lives, our omni-always shopping experience is designed to make it as easy as possible to feel at home. 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,” Chief Digital Officer Rafeh Masood said in a statement on the roll-out.
“So, whether you need a last-minute gift, are missing that all-purpose pan for Thanksgiving dinner, or need diapers or other home essentials right away, we will be there to help make this holiday season special,” Masood said.
Along with the introduction of same day delivery come strategic partnerships with Shipt and Instacart. The service will also be available on the Shipt and Instacart websites and mobile apps.
Existing Shipt customers will still receive free delivery on all orders over $35 when shopping directly through Shipt platforms.
