By now you’ve probably seen the image of a man with a box of chopstick-shaped bread wrapped in a white plastic bag with the words ‘delivered by WalMart Express Delivery’ in large white letters on the side.
The image was shared widely online, and with it, a whole lot of questions.
What exactly is the WalMartExpress delivery service?
What does it deliver?
Will it take my money?
What happens if I buy the item online and it’s not delivered?
What happens if it’s delayed?
How much does the delivery cost?
Are the delivery charges real?
Are they cheaper than the store price?
How long does it take?
What about the shipping cost?
These are all questions that have been put to Walmart’s customers, but they’ve not yet received the delivery.
Instead, we’re getting a first look at the delivery experience at the company’s new stores.
The new WalMart stores are set to open on January 18, with the first of these being in the New York area, and the rest in the rest of the country.
While this is a first for the company, there are already plenty of WalMart employees and employees of its other brands already living in the new stores, and there are plans to bring a WalMart in every Walmart store across the country by year’s end.
Walmart is also introducing a loyalty program for new customers, which will allow them to pay $2.99 for each box of food and $1.99 per box of water.
That’s a big change from the previous version of the loyalty program, which offered $1 for a box, but only allowed for one payment per customer.
Walmart announced the new loyalty program at its annual shareholder meeting in March, and we’re happy to see that the company is trying to expand its food and beverage business.
At this point, it’s hard to know what the new program will do for customers who already have the loyalty, but we’ll let you know as soon as we learn more.
WalMart has been expanding into more stores, including the new Walmart Supercenter in Minneapolis, the Walmart Supercenters in the Chicago, Los Angeles and Dallas markets, and its newly-opened Supercenter store in Minneapolis.
The company also announced it’s expanding its retail services in other countries.
The new stores will be available to customers in India, Turkey, and Turkey, while the first two stores in Singapore and Indonesia will be open in the second half of the year.
Wal Mart has been increasing its share of the grocery market since its acquisition of Kroger in 2009, but it still trails its competitors in many areas, including food and grocery.
It has been spending big on advertising, however, which it’s already using to get its customers to the new locations.
