Walmart 'Jetblack' is being unveiled as a concierge-style service that makes it easy for consumers to send texts to get the products the need.
The service is specifically being geared towards moms and "time-strapped urban parents," as the personal shopping service has the potential to simplify the product-ordering process, as well as streamline same or next-day delivery, which is free. To place an order, a Jetblack member is able to send a text and have curated product recommendations sent back to them in return.
Currently, Walmart Jetblack is open by invite only to some customers in Manhattan and Brooklyn who live in buildings with a doorman. While there are some comparable services that offer similar programs, this new service comes in at just $50 monthly, which is significantly less than others.
