Walmart has added four delivery companies to its network to help expand the retailer’s online grocery delivery options.
Point Pickup, Skipcart, AxleHire and Roadie will help power Walmart’s online grocery delivery in metro areas across four states with further expansion planned in the coming weeks. Currently, Walmart grocery delivery is available in more than 800 stores with another 800 being added this year.
“Customers love our grocery delivery service. As they are busy managing jobs, soccer practice, dance lessons and social schedules we are on a mission to do more than keep a little extra money in their pockets,” said Tom Ward, svp/digital operations, Walmart U.S. “With the help of these new delivery partners, we’re making grocery shopping even easier by bringing the everyday low prices of Walmart right to the front door of customers.”
Walmart currently offers grocery delivery in more than 100 metro areas. The retailer will make grocery deliveries to more than 300 metro areas by the end of this year. An online grocery pickup service is now available in 2,100 stores with 1,000 more to be added this year.
