How does Walmart Grocery work?

Their answer to Amazon Fresh and other grocery delivering options, Walmart Grocery is a new pickup and delivery service that lets you – that’s right – go grocery shopping online. As of this writing the service is only in select locations, so enter your zip code on the Walmart grocery website to check availability. Once inside, shop for groceries by adding your items and quantities to your cart. Check out and choose delivery (if available) or pickup.

Aside from the convenience factor, they claim that they don’t mark up the prices on the website from the store prices, so if you use the free pickup option you’ll get the same price as shopping in-store.

Features

  • Picking up is always free
  • Delivery fees vary based on your location
  • Pick up and delivery times are available in 2 or 4 hour windows
  • They’ll even bring your bags out to your car
  • Walmart grocery is open from 7am to 11pm, so while you can order at any time, your pickup or delivery will fall between those times.
