Walmart is now testing out grocery deliveries by collaborating with ride share companies Lyft and Uber.

The company is currently launching the service in Phoenix and Denver to get a better idea of the market for grocery deliveries in the area. It's reported that Walmart would work with 'AmazonFresh,' making the service possible in multiple US states. The purpose of the new business venture for the brand is to drive its online sales, making its products more readily available for consumers.

Considering Walmart's popularity and the increase in demand of food service delivery platforms, its likely that the grocery deliveries will prove successful. The service would work by having consumers enter in their shopping list through a simple online platform, at which point Walmart employees would ready the items for the driver to be dropped off.
