Walmart Testing Same-Day Delivery for Online Shoppers
October 11, 2012,
BENTONVILLE, Ark.-Walmart has launched a test of same-day delivery of holiday merchandise for shoppers on walmart.com.
Called "Walmart To Go," the program enables eligible shoppers to visit walmart.com/togo, sign in or create an account, and enter their delivery address. The shoppers can then browse the "Walmart To Go" assortment online specific to their location. Eligible items will carry the same prices as they do in local Walmart stores.
The test is currently taking place in northern Virginia (just outside of Washington), Philadelphia and Minneapolis. Walmart debuted a "Walmart To Go" grocery delivery service in the San Francisco/San Jose market in April 2010. This market will begin a test for general merchandise as well later this month or in early November.
