Walmart is now mobilizing to vastly expand its two-hour Express Delivery service, at a time when delivery demand is at an all-time high. Walmart stated that expanding the two-hour Express Delivery service is in response to COVID-19, and to serve the mass amount of people who are sheltering in place.
The retail giant was pilot testing the service dating back to April, with 100 locations participating in the pilot test. Walmart will now expand the service to just under 2,000 locations. Consumers will be able to access all types of products from Walmart including groceries, electronics, and more.
Janey Whiteside, the chief customer officer for Walmart, made a statement, “We know our customers’ lives have changed during this pandemic, and so has the way they shop. 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.”
