Walmart Grocery pickup and delivery: How to make an online order
With people staying at home during the coronavirus pandemic, Walmart grocery collection and delivery is an essential way to get fresh groceries and staples while maintaining social distance.
Walmart Grocery is one of the best grocery delivery services out there, offering a pickup option in addition to delivery. Customers in over 1,600 cities can shop on the website or in the app and then select a time slot for delivery or collection. Note that demand is currently extremely high and only a few time slots are available.
Walmart Grocery was first tested in a few cities in 2015 and then added more cities and regions. Most of the time, Walmart Grocery offered online same-day in-person pickup purchases. But the service has also evolved into a delivery service over the past year. It is currently available in over 1,600 stores.
Walmart Grocery offers fresh groceries such as vegetables, fruits, meat, seafood, dairy and baked goods. In the same order, customers can also purchase other Walmart items such as housewares, electronics, home textiles, beauty products, clothing, and toys – basically anything Walmart sells at low Walmart prices.
No membership or subscription is required. However, you will need a Walmart.com login which you can create using your email address.
