Walmart expands grocery click and collect

Screen Shot 2015-10-01 at 10.20.42 AMThe world’s largest retailer, US-based, Walmart, has expanded its click and collect service for online groceries to eight additional US cities, with more to be announced to in the coming weeks.

Walmart confirmed on its website it has rolled out free online grocery pickup in Atlanta, Georgia; Charlotte and Fayetteville, North Carolina; Salt Lake City and Ogden, Utah; Nashville, Tennessee; Tucson, Arizona; and Colorado Springs, Colorado.

“We’ve tested online grocery options – both pickup and delivery – in a handful of markets across the U.S., and each time we’ve added a new city, our customers begin using the service faster than they did in the previous one,” Walmart said.

Walmart currently operates online grocery shopping in the US, UK, China, Mexico, Japan, Chile, Argentina, and Canada.

“With 70 per cent of the U.S. population living within five miles of an existing Walmart store, this is an idea that simply makes sense for us,” the company said.
