US retail giant Walmart has said that it is expanding its shipping and pickup offerings for the coming holiday season.
In a statement, Walmart said: “New for customers this holiday season is the ability to shop Walmart’s free two-day shipping and the Pickup Discount, which provides additional savings for customers who shop hundreds of thousands of online-only items and ship to a Walmart store for free pickup.”
Walmart added: “Customers can also use Walmart’s free Pickup Today service to reserve items online to pick up in store on the same day.
“Walmart has also expanded its Online Grocery Pickup service to double the number of locations available since last holiday season. Online Grocery Pickup is now available at more than 1,100 locations and helps customers pick up everything from their everyday meal ingredients to their seasonal needs, like gifts and even a Christmas tree, without getting out of their car.”
Scott Hilton, chief revenue officer, Walmart U.S. eCommerce, commented: “We launched some really powerful things for customers this year with free two-day shipping and the Pickup Discount.
“These programs will be playing a big role during the holiday season.”
Rival US retailer Target recently announced that it will be offering Free Ship with no minimum purchase required over the holiday season.
