Walmart Plans To Offer Grocery Delivery With Postmates
Beginning in Charlotte, North Carolina, Walmart will expand its grocery delivery service to 40% of the U.S. through a partnership with Postmates
As part of its plan to expand grocery delivery services to cover 40% of the U.S., Walmart has partnered with delivery company Postmates, beginning with thousands of customers in Charlotte, North Carolina.
“Customers are busy, they are managing jobs, soccer practice, dance lessons and social schedules; so we are on a mission to do more than keep a little extra money in their pockets,” Mark Ibbotson, executive vice president of Central Operations at Walmart, said in a press release. “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.”
The online delivery service will use the Postmates delivery network for purchases made through the store’s grocery app or online, which are then selected by Walmart’s personal shoppers and delivered for a fee $9.95 and a $30 minimum, as soon as the same day. Walmart is also offering a grocery pick-up service that allows customers to order their groceries online and collect them curbside, without even getting out of the car.
