In a trial set to be announced later today, Walmart will partner with same-day delivery service Deliv, and car-hailing services Uber and Lyft on grocery home delivery service. The trial of the grocery delivery service with Lyft and Uber will start in the next two weeks in Denver and another unannounced market. This is in addition to a very quiet Sam’s Club pilot that started in March with Deliv involving delivery of general merchandise and grocery for business members in Miami.
How It Works:
Customers in one of the test locations place their grocery order online and select a delivery window, then Walmart personal shoppers and trained Walmart associates will carefully select and prepare their order. A member of the team may request a driver from one of these services to come to the store, pick up the customer’s order, and take it directly to the customer’s location. The customer pays a $7-10 delivery charge online, and makes no payment to the driver.
