I’ve been picking up at Walmart with the Walmart app since the summer and I think this is the best way to get groceries.

The Walmart app will prompt you to select the closest pick-up location or enter your delivery address.

You choose a time window of one hour, at least one day in advance, but up to more than a week in the future. There is a specific time only for at-risk customers.

Walmarts app focuses on groceries and breaks them down by category, making it easy to go through a list of items you need.

It’s easy to add items to your order and quickly adjust quantities.

Once your order is created, you have until about midnight the night before to add it to your list. For me, this is one of the most useful features as I almost always realize that we need something else before it is actually time to collect groceries.

Because groceries are ordered a few days in advance, sometimes the exact brand of an item is not available on the day of collection. Walmart suggests a substitution and gives the option to approve it. I’ve always been very lucky with it.

When the order is ready, Walmart will send an SMS notification asking you to check in so a member of staff will be ready to take it out when you arrive.

One of my frustrations with Target was selecting an item only to find out that my store was out of stock. The Walmart app makes it clearer when an item isn’t available without having to click on it and go to a separate page.
