Walmart will soon deliver in two hours or less
Walmart is expanding its Express Delivery option that can get orders to consumers in less than two hours.
The service was piloted to 100 stores in mid-April, as an effort to serve shoppers stuck at home during the coronavirus pandemic. After a successful launch, the service will be rolled out to 2,000 stores by Mid-May.
Express Delivery allows customers to order across more than 160,000 items from Walmart’s food, consumables and general merchandise assortment such as groceries, everyday essentials, toys and electronics.
“We know our customers’ lives have changed during this pandemic and so has the way they shop,” said Janey Whiteside, chief customer officer, Walmart. “We also know when we come out of this, customers will be busier than ever, and sometimes that will call for needing supplies in a hurry. COVID-19 has prompted us to launch Express Delivery even faster so that we’re here for our customers today and in the future.”
Walmart’s Express Delivery will be contactless, as all of its current delivery options are and the cost for the quicker option is $10 on on top of the existing delivery charge.
