Walmart customers can now shop at the lowest prices on the internet by purchasing their groceries through a brand new online grocery delivery service.
The online grocery provider is now accepting orders from customers across the country, including in New York City, Chicago, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, Boston and more.
The Walmart brand has long been known for its quality products and fast delivery, but customers were worried that the delivery service might take too long.
The new service, called WalmartFresh, will allow customers to shop for groceries directly from their smartphones.
“We’ve heard from a lot of our customers who were frustrated by the wait for the delivery,” Walmart’s executive vice president of global business development for Walmart Fresh, Dan Stapleton, told CNNMoney.
“They wanted a fast and efficient delivery, and we listened.”
Stapleton says WalmartFresh is an expansion of WalmartFresh’s existing delivery service, WalmartFresh Plus, which lets shoppers order groceries from the convenience of their smartphone and has served more than 3.3 million customers in the United States.
The service has a $10 minimum order, but the service is now available to customers in about 30 cities across the United State.
WalmartFresh customers in New Jersey can order their groceries online from the app, and they can also order groceries online through WalmartFreshPlus.com, which is available in more than 150 cities in the U.S.
The new service is one of the first of its kind in Walmart’s business, and it’s part of a push by Walmart to improve the quality of its food, Stapletons said.
“We are trying to bring food to people in an efficient and convenient way, and that’s the core of Walmart’s DNA,” he said.
The food delivery service is similar to the new delivery service offered by FedEx and UPS.
The delivery service requires customers to register for an account on the online store, then enter their ZIP code and pick up their groceries in a Walmart truck.
The groceries are delivered to the customer’s door.
The company is also launching a Walmart Fresh Plus delivery service that will allow users to order from the online grocery service directly from the smartphone.
WalmartFresh will initially be available in New England, where customers can order groceries through the Walmart store in Boston.
In cities across North America, Walmart is adding stores to serve more stores, but this is the first time that customers will be able to order groceries directly online.
The first WalmartFresh locations will open in New Orleans, Atlanta, Minneapolis, St. Louis, Milwaukee, Portland, Salt Lake City and St. Petersburg, Florida, on March 25.
The first Walmart Fresh stores are expected to open by the end of the year.
