When you take a trip to Costco, chances are you've blocked out an entire afternoon. The stores are so massive that it's easy to get lost in the aisles, browsing the books on display and chowing down on free samples. But if you don't have time to shop in bulk, there's now a new option for you.
reports that a delivery service called Shipt is starting a program to deliver Costco to your door. It's beginning in Tampa, Florida, and plans to expand to 50 other locations across the country by the end of the year. According to , you can even order Costco through Shipt if you're not a member. If you are a member, you'll get points for getting your Costco goods delivered.
But this delivery is going to cost you. If you sign up for Shipt, you have to pay a , which also covers deliveries from local grocery stores. Once you order, you can schedule a one-hour window for your items to be dropped off at your home, and a Shipt worker goes shopping for you and delivers what you asked for.
Shipt isn't the only company doing this sort of thing; you can use the service in some locations to get Costco without leaving your couch. It might be the solution for busy people who want to buy in bulk, but it definitely removes some of the fun of wheeling your massive cart around — and buying way more than you ever intended.
