In response to the high demand of deliveries during COVID-19 stay-at-home orders, Walmart is launching a new service that delivers groceries, electronics, medicine, toys, and everyday essentials directly to your doorstep in less than two hours.
Express Delivery is currently available at 100 stores and will expand to around 1,000 stores in early May, with the total reaching 2,000 stores in "the following weeks," according to the company's blog post.
Customers will be able to choose from over 160,000 items and select the Express Delivery option during online check out—there will need to be at least $30 in the cart.
"We know our customers' lives have changed during this pandemic, and so has the way they shop," said Janey Whiteside, chief customer officer, Walmart. "We also know when we come out of this, customers will be busier than ever, and sometimes that will call for needing supplies in a hurry. COVID-19 has prompted us to launch Express Delivery even faster so that we're here for our customers today and in the future."
The price of the service is $10 on top of the existing delivery charge, or if you're a member of Walmart's Delivery Unlimited, you'll pay a $10 fee per Express Delivery.
