An online grocery delivery service will now be delivering Costco products to customers' homes, but the service won't be available in California just yet.

Shipt announced Tuesday the addition of Costco to their service, with residents in the Tampa, Florida, area the first in the U.S. to try it out.

The delivery service only applies to groceries, including perishable items. Apparel, electronics and furniture are not part of the service, MarketWatch reported.

For those without a Costco membership, TampaBayOnline reported that a club membership is not required to buy groceries through Shipt.

According to a press release, Shipt "has plans to offer its services to 50 markets and over 30 million households by the end of the year."

"We founded Shipt to simplify the grocery shopping experience, and are pleased to give our dedicated members access to unmatched savings as an extension of their Shipt memberships," said Bill Smith, founder and CEO of Shipt. "As we continue to scale Shipt on a national level, we look forward to offering more options for delivery to our Florida members today, and to Shipt members across the country in the future."

Shipt memberships are available for an annual fee of $99 and members have access to unlimited free deliveries. Click here to learn more about Shipt.
