Is there a dress code or uniform for shoppers with Shipt?

Wearing a Shipt shirt while shopping is optional, but doing so is highly recommended. Wearing Shipt attire allows store employees to quickly identify you as a shopper with Shipt, which can help you get in-store assistance quickly when needed. Shipt shirts also allow members to quickly recognize you're with Shipt when you arrive to deliver, which can bring peace of mind and promote a positive member experience.
