Wouldn’t it be nice to have your Walmart groceries delivered right to your door?
Well, Walmart recently announced that they’re expanding their grocery delivery service to even more cities.
According to a press release, the retailer will expand its online grocery delivery option to more than 40 percent of U.S. households by the end of the year and will serve more than 100 cities across the nation. Walmart currently delivers grocery orders in six markets.
So, if you’re a busy parent or just don’t feel like going to the store at the end of a long day, this is the service for you! Because not only is the service convenient, it’s also easy to use.
Walmart believes this service will save customers time and put them above the competition.
“We’re saving customers time by leveraging new technology, and connecting all the parts of our business into a single seamless shopping experience: great stores, easy pickup, fast delivery, and apps and websites that are simple to use,” Greg Foran, president and CEO of Walmart U.S. said in a press release. “We’re serving our customers in ways that no one else can. Using our size and scale, we’re bringing the best of Walmart to customers across the country.”
But, the announcement has spurred other grocers to remain competitive. According to the New York Times, Kroger has already announced their plans to expand delivery services to more cities via Instacart, and Target has plans to make same-day delivery available via Shipt.
Do we live in a time where going to the grocery store is outdated? Sure seems that way! But hey—who doesn’t prefer grocery shopping from their couch, office desk, or in between the kids’ soccer practice and homework anyways?
