Wal-Mart to expand online delivery service

Written by Chris Lemmon

US retail giant Wal-Mart has signed an agreement with Postmates to help expand its online grocery delivery programme to more than 40 per cent of US households.

Customers can either place their orders online or via the Wal-Mart grocery app, then select a delivery window at checkout for a price of $9.95. A Postmates employee will retrieve the order from a Wal-Mart store and deliver it to the customer’s home.

The retailer also offers a pickup service that allows customers to order their groceries online and pick them up in-store, with a member of staff bringing their order directly to their car.

The service will initially launch this week in Charlotte, North Carolina, with further expansion planned in the coming months.

“With the help of Postmates, we’re making grocery shopping even easier by bringing the everyday low prices of Walmart right to the front door of customers in Charlotte with more areas to be added soon,” noted Mark Ibbotson, executive vice president of central operations at Wal-Mart US.
