Walmart in the US is reportedly offering $98 per year “Delivery Unlimited” subscription. Signing up to Delivery Unlimited means shoppers will no longer need to pay delivery fees for each individual grocery order, but purchases should come to at least $30.
Steeve Azoulay, senior director of public affairs for Walmart Canada told Grocery Business that the company is not planning on adding this delivery subscription service in Canada "in the the immediate future."
He adds that Walmart Canada offers online grocery pickup in more than 170 locations in multiple provinces and "nearly 50 per cent of our stores will offer this service by the end of the year. For GTA customers who don’t have a Walmart Supercentre close by, they can pick up their Walmart groceries at a nearby PenguinPickUp location.
Azoulay says Walmart Canada currently offers grocery delivery in the Greater Toronto Area, Winnipeg and Vancouver via Walmart fleet and delivery partners and that the company plans on expanding grocery delivery to more markets in the coming months.
"Select regions in the Greater Toronto Area and Winnipeg are eligible for same-day grocery delivery through Instacart in as fast as one hour. Customers can download the Instacart app or visit instacart.ca to find their local Walmart Supercentre and place their order. Instacart personal shoppers will shop at Walmart on the customer's behalf then deliver directly to the customer's door."
