Walmart to roll out Delivery Unlimited grocery service across U.S.

Walmart, the retail giant, recently announced that it is rolling out a new Delivery Unlimited grocery service in 1,400 Walmart stores across U.S. Reportedly, the subscription membership will charge an annual fee of USD $98 for subscribers to access unlimited same-day delivery.

For the record, Walmart has more than 45,000 personal shoppers that aid the firm in packing grocery orders for customers every day. Nonetheless, these people must complete three weeks of training before being part of the taskforce at Walmart.

As per credible sources, Walmart has been testing this Delivery Unlimited grocery in four of its markets, including Tampa, Salt Lake City, Miami and Houston. The retailer giant confirmed that the service will be offered in 200 metro areas across the U.S., where it already has regular grocery delivery.  As part of the nationwide rollout, the new service will be covering more than 50 percent of the nation’s population by the end of 2019.

Reportedly, the new service by Walmart offers two payment options; pay either $12.95 per month or either $98 per year to get unlimited grocery delivery orders at home. Delivery would cost an additional $9.99 on an order-by-order basis. In addition to meat, bakery items and fresh produce, some general merchandise is also offered under the new unlimited service.

Tom Ward, senior VP of digital operations Walmart (U.S.), was reportedly quoted saying that the firm has been investing in its online grocery business through quick expansion of its Grocery Pickup & Delivery services and the new rollout is expected to supplement this journey. Ward added that by pairing size, scale and these new services, Walmart is projected to become the easiest places to shop at.

Walmart has already been consolidating it position in the United States and this new nationwide rollout will builds upon its established grocery business. The giant retailer already offers online grocery order pickup option, which is available at nearly 3,000 stores to date.
