Walmart Expands Online Grocery Delivery Services


Bentonville, Ark.-based retail giant Walmart has announced the expansion of its online grocery delivery service to nearly 800 stores. The expansion will boost the company’s reach in 100 metropolitan markets, extending its presence to more than 40 percent of households in the United States. The grocery delivery business will be supported through several new partnerships, including a collaboration with Uber, CNBC reports.

Accessible via the Walmart Grocery app, the delivery platform will be offered to shoppers for a flat fee of $9.95 for orders of at least $30. No subscription is required for the service, a unique trait that distinguishes Walmart’s services from others in the market. Amazon recently confirmed the expansion of its Amazon Grocery delivery network, while Kroger and Target have announced collaborations with third-party providers that include Instacart and Shipt.

Walmart expects to implement online grocery ordering at 2,200 stores before 2019.
