Walmart is teaming up with DoorDash to further its online grocery delivery service. The service will kick off in Atlanta before expanding across the United States later this year.
The service is similar to the delivery option that Walmart started offering last month. If customers are within one of the new delivery areas they'll be able to select that as an option along with a time window they would like their order to be delivered in. DoorDash will then deliver your order when the time is right.
Groceries can be delivered to customers as soon as the same day. Walmart’s Online Grocery Delivery carries a simple $9.95 fee and a $30 minimum order.
“We’re connecting all the parts of our business to create a shopping experience like no one else can. With the expansion of our Online Grocery Delivery program, customers can have great items at every day low prices delivered to their door with the click of a button,” said Greg Foran, president and CEO, Walmart U.S., in a news release. “With the help of DoorDash, we’re delivering the best of Walmart to customers in Atlanta and beyond.”
DoorDash, along with Walmart’s team of more than 18,000 personal shoppers, will bring delivery to thousands of customers in Atlanta allowing them to shop for and have fresh groceries without ever leaving their couch. Personal shoppers must complete a three-week training program learning how to select the freshest produce and the best cuts of meat for Online Grocery customers.
“Our work with Walmart marks DoorDash’s official launch beyond restaurant delivery,” said DoorDash’s Chief Operating Officer Christopher Payne. “We look forward to expanding across the country, enabling Walmart customers everywhere to spend more time doing the things they love.”
