Set to start in Denver, Colorado in the next two weeks Walmart has announced it will offer shoppers the ability to deliver groceries via rideshare services.
Customers of Walmart will be able to purchase goods through the brand's website and opt to have the items delivered to their door via Uber, Deliv or Lyft at their convenience. The delivery service is set to cost between $7 and $10 with customers not needing to pay the driver for the service but rather paying through the Walmart site.
The move for Walmart to deliver groceries and other essentials comes as a welcome bit of competition in the market in the wake of services like Amazon Fresh and other grocery delivery services. It helps to expand the offerings by the retailer and partner with other consumer service brands that are trusted and reputable.
