Walmart Bringing Grocery Pickup To Eight New Markets

Walmart is expanding its grocery pickup service across several markets.

The Bentonville, Arkansas-based retailer currently offers free grocery pickup in more than 20 markets. This month, the service will launch in eight new markets: Kansas City; Boise, Idaho; Richmond and Virginia Beach, Virginia; Austin, Texas; Provo, Utah; Daphne, Alabama; and Charleston, South Carolina. Walmart says it plans to add more markets throughout the year.

“We’re also doubling the number of store pickup locations in markets like Dallas, Houston and Atlanta, where this convenient service is already offered,” says Michael Bender, EVP and COO, Walmart Global eCommerce, on the company’s website.

The service is free and customers can find the same prices found in stores when they shop online. To use the service, customers shop their grocery lists online, choose a time to pick up their orders and then pull in to a designated parking area at their local store, where associates will load the items into their cars.

Company opens new Neighborhood Market in St. Cloud, Florida

In other Walmart news, the company opened a new Neighborhood Market in St. Cloud, Florida, on April 13, at 2125 Nolte Road.

The 41,000-s.f. store is managed by Julie Ferreira and brings about 95 new jobs to the area. It is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

“We are excited about bringing the first Walmart Neighborhood Market to the St. Cloud community,” said Ferreira. “Customers can look forward to conveniently finding their everyday products at Walmart’s everyday low prices.”

In addition to groceries, including produce and meat, the store features a full-service pharmacy and a fuel station.

After the past two years of uncertainty and changed plans due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we all hoped that 2022 might bring back a sense of normalcy.

However, with government and independent data confirming 40 years of inflation highs and Wall Street entering a bear market, grocers now have new challenges to face.

In this webinar, we will hear from Todd Taylor of Neighborhood Fresh and Darlene Murphy of Metcalfe’s Market about why shopper loyalty is so important in this time of inflation.
