P&G And Walmart Let Customers Scan And Buy Products Off The Side Of A Truck

P&G And Walmart Let Customers Scan And Buy Products Off The Side Of A Truck

The two megabrands launch a food-truck-like mobile initiative that allows pedestrians to purchase household items via QR codes.

Procter & Gamble and Walmart team up in a new marketing campaign to promote online and mobile shopping in big cities. Utilizing the power of virtual “pop-up” stores and “food truck”-style mobile hub, the online retailers offer customers curb-side shopping and free delivery straight to their doorsteps. Launching in Chicago and New York City, the mobile truck can be tracked via its Twitter handle – @PGMobile. Passerbys can scan the QR codes decorating the truck‚Äôs body and buy product and brands such as Bounty paper towels, Head & Shoulders shampoo and Iams dog food at Walmart’s “everyday low prices.”

P&G spokesman Tim Marrin says of the campaign:

People have yet to really adopt buying consumables online. We think having free delivery, and getting this message out to urban shoppers who don’t have access to Walmart stores, is a great first start.

Fans of @PGMobile can even request the truck to go to a specific neighborhood and receive free samples.
