Walmart Canada and 7-Eleven Canada launch Grab & Go locker pilot project
Walmart Canada and 7-Eleven Canada have announced the expansion of Walmart Canada’s Grab & Go Locker network in six 7-Eleven stores in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). The announcement marks the first time in Canada that two retailers have teamed up to offer a Grab & Go Locker service.
According to a statement issued yesterday (5 October) by Walmart Canada: “The service offers customers using Walmart.ca a convenient free shipping option where they can pick up their order, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, at no cost. Today’s announcement expands on Walmart Canada’s current Grab & Go Locker service which offers free shipping to 45 Grab & Go Lockers in the GTA.”
Simon Rodrigue, senior vice president, ecommerce, Walmart Canada, said: “We know our customers already use 7-Eleven stores in their daily routine. Now they can fuel up their car at their local 7-Eleven and pick up their Walmart.ca order in one easy stop, any day, any time, without paying shipping fees.”
Raj Kapoor, vice president and general manager, 7-Eleven Canada, added: “We know that our customers look to us to give them a one-stop shopping experience, so we’re pleased to be able to offer them this additional service. We’ll continue to listen to our customers and will evaluate the success of this pilot on an ongoing basis.”
Walmart Canada’s Grab & Go Locker service allows customers to order goods online and ship for free to a Grab& Go locker. Once the item is placed in the locker the customer is sent an email with a 6-digit PIN code. Customers then have 7 days to retrieve their items from the locker. Walmart’s Grab & Go Lockers are currently offered in select GTA Walmart stores, Walmart Canada Home Office, and Kapuskasing, Ontario.
Walmart Canada and 7-Eleven Canada Inc. have agreed to a six-month pilot of the project to evaluate customer response and usage.
