Walmart Teams With Postmates To Expand Grocery Delivery

The growing grocery delivery battle among a host of retailers continues with Walmart firing the latest shot.

The nation’s largest retailer and Postmates have reached an agreement to expand Walmart’s online grocery delivery option to more than 40% of U.S. households, the company said. The program starts April 10 in Charlotte, NC, with expansion planned in the coming months.

“Both Walmart and Postmates strive to make the lives of our customers easier,” said Dan Mosher, svp/merchant lead, Postmates. “With our growing fleet of 160,000 couriers, we are confident that we’ll be providing Walmart customers with the ultimate convenience.”

Walmart’s online grocery delivery program has a $9.95 fee and requires a $30 minimum order. However, a subscription is not required.
