Wal-Mart has expanded a new two-hour delivery service to help people make shopping more convenient, as the new crown outbreak has kept Americans at home,media CNET reported. The new service, called Express Delivery, aims to deliver goods from stores to customers’ doorsteps within two hours.
Wal-Mart has been experimenting with fast-delivery services, starting in mid-April in 100 stores. The service will add $10 to any existing delivery fee, the company wrote in a post on its website, “and will expand to nearly 1,000 stores in early May and nearly 2,000 stores in the coming weeks.” “
With the new delivery option, Wal-Mart said shoppers would be able to “order more than 160,000 items” from retail giants’ “groceries such as food, consumables and daily necessities, daily necessities, toys and electronics.”
The new service can be found at walmart.com/grocery or Wal-Mart APP.
It’s Wal-Mart’s latest response to the new corona virus outbreak, as well as Amazon’s Prime Now, which also offers two-hour delivery to its members. Amazon offers free shipping for orders over $35, and orders below this threshold charge a $5 shipping fee. Amazon Prime Now is available in more than 90 cities and markets across the United States.
