A spokeswoman for Philadelphia-based online retailer Gopuff confirms that the service is now available in Wichita at three product distribution centers.
No one at the company was available to speak on Wednesday when Did You Heard? first reported on the business.
The spokesperson also doesn’t want her name used in the story.
She describes the business as a delivery system for everyday needs, such as certain food and snacks, cleaning supplies, pet products, over-the-counter medications, baby items, and household goods. Most items can be delivered in about 30 minutes for a charge of $ 1.95.
For $ 5 a month, customers can get what she calls free shipping as well as surprise products.
Although Gopuff does deliver alcohol to certain states, she has stated that this cannot be the case in Kansas due to state law.
Gopuff sells all of its own inventory and has employees working in its centers and drivers it contracts with for deliveries.
So far, Gopuff has three centers in the Wichita area, including one near 13th and Broadway and Maple and Maize Road and another in Haysville.
If Gopuff looks set to be some sort of tobacco store, it’s because its founders started the business as a hookah delivery service.
To order from Gopuff, customers can download its app. There is no in-person shopping at the company.
