Target is partnering with Shipt to expand same-day delivery in several states including Missouri, although not yet in St. Louis.

Minneapolis-based Target said Thursday that the service that makes deliveries of 55,000 items available in as soon as an hour will expand to select cities in Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas and additional markets in Mississippi. Same-day delivery will begin in Kansas City and Springfield, Mo., May 10.

“State by state, we’re bringing a completely new way of shopping to residents who find themselves short on time and looking for an easy, personalized way to simplify their lives,” Bill Smith, founder and chief executive officer, Shipt, said in a a statement. “Through our app, our members have access to everything they need, when they need it, right at their fingertips. This is just the beginning of the expansion Shipt and Target have planned for the year."

Membership-based Shipt costs $99 a year, however the company is offering annual memberships for $49 for first-time users. Members receive free delivery on orders of $35 or higher.
