Walmart Canada has launched grocery pickup for customers in Manitoba, with first orders set to start on August 14, 2018. This marks the fifth province in Canada to gain grocery pickup at Walmart, joining select locations in Ontario, Quebec, Alberta and British Columbia.
The grocery pickup option allows customers to place grocery orders online and have them ready to be picked up in store, on the same day. Orders can be placed on the web or through the Walmart iOS app, a free service with a minimum $50 orders before taxes.
“Walmart is known for saving our customers money and, with the launch of Grocery Pickup in Manitoba, we’re now also helping our Manitoban customers save valuable time with grocery shopping, no matter how busy they are,” said Daryl Porter, vice president of omni-channel operations and online grocery, Walmart Canada, in a statement. “Manitobans have been asking for this service and we’re proud to offer it as we continue to improve, expand and grow our services so customers can shop however they want, whenever it’s convenient for them, from wherever they are.”
Walmart says customers just need to pull into a designated pickup parking spot, call a number alerting the store and their order will be brought out and loaded into their car.
