DALLAS - Online grocery shopping is heating up this summer in Dallas. As Wal-Mart and Kroger roll out their online pickup service, H-E-B is stepping in.
H-E-B is turning to Shipt, an app-based online grocery service, to advance its home delivery shopping in Texas.
Birmingham, Ala.-based Shipt will launch online grocery shopping from H-E-B stores in the grocery chain’s hometown of San Antonio on May 25.
Shipt is hiring 300 shoppers in San Antonio.
The plan is to expand the seven-day-a-week service with Shipt to Dallas, Austin, Houston and more markets later this year, the companies said.
