Thumbtack Putting Custom Displays Into 300 H-E-B Stores

Thumbtack, a home management platform, is making its first foray into retail. Thumbtack has rolled out branded displays throughout more than 300 H-E-B stores across Texas that allow H-E-B customers to scan a QR code to find and access local pet service providers while shopping. Available pet services include dog walking, grooming, pet sitting, training, and more.

This is Thumbtack’s first move into physical retail, with the goal of meeting consumers where they are. As the only platform people need to care for everything in and around their homes, Thumbtack is excited to expand its physical footprint in the year ahead, kicking off with beloved Texas retailer H-E-B.

“Thumbtack’s job is to make caring for everything in and around the home a seamless experience for the homeowner,” said David Steckel, Senior Director of Strategic Partnerships at Thumbtack. “Expanding into physical retail brings us one step closer to that by allowing us to be a partner for consumers whether they’re shopping in-store for their pets or getting their backyards ready for hosting.”

In addition to launching pet services, Thumbtack is offering its Thumbtack On-Demand feature in select H-E-B stores, which allows consumers to find and hire local handyman, lawn care and cleaning services at a 10% discount. The initiative makes home services professionals available to H-E-B customers so that Thumbtack can help people seamlessly care for their homes.
