Walmart is giving Amazon’s new free two-hour delivery on Whole Foods orders some competition with their announcement to start grocery delivery service in 100 metro areas by the end of the year. Walmart’s online grocery delivery is only available in six areas now, but they’re expanding quickly.
America’s largest retailer says that within nine months, their grocery delivery service will serve over 40% of U.S. households, according to their press release. Walmart didn’t give details about where and when the service will be expanded, but they did assure customers who use the service online or via the Walmart Grocery App will “find the same everyday low prices” they see in stores.
But getting Walmart to bring your groceries to your door isn’t free. The delivery service costs $9.95 per order, with a $30 minimum purchase, but it does keep you from having to set foot inside Walmart, and that’s definitely worth something.
