Walmart and Postmates team up to expand grocery delivery programme
Walmart and Postmates have announced an agreement to help expand the retailer’s online grocery delivery option to more than 40% of US households.
In a statement issued today (10 April), Walmart said the agreement would begin in Charlotte, North Carolina, with further expansion planned in the coming months.
Dan Mosher, senior vice president, merchant lead, Postmates, said: “With our growing fleet of 160,000 couriers, we are confident that we’ll be providing Walmart customers with the ultimate convenience.”
Walmart’s Online Grocery Delivery carries a $9.95 fee and a $30 minimum order. The retailer also offers a Click and Clock grocery pickup service – called “Grocery Hero” – in 1,200 US stores, with 1,000 more to be added this year.
