Today Walmart Canada is launching a same-day grocery delivery service in parts of the Greater Toronto Area.
As reported in the Globe and Mail, the pilot will also be rolled out in Winnipeg later in September.
Walmart Canada is partnering with Instacart for the service, which will cost $3.99 for purchases up to $35 and a further 7.5 per cent of the order above that amount. Same hour delivery costs an extra $5, the Globe reports. Customers can also opt to pay $99 annually or $9.99 monthly for unlimited deliveries.
“We believe that the more options we can provide in these urban centres, specifically, gives us a real advantage,” Daryl Porter, vice-president of omni-channel operations and online grocery at Walmart Canada, said in an interview.
Following the pilot, Walmart Canada will decide whether to launch the same-day delivery service in other Canadian cities.
