Click and it's at your door - in as little as an hour - is the new reality for Walmart customers across B.C. as the retailer announced this week the launch of the expansion of their on-demand delivery service.
Walmart and Instacart are growing their partnership to serve more shoppers nationwide, including from 31 B.C. stores. "The expansion builds on a successful 17-store pilot in the Greater Toronto Area and Winnipeg, which has been strongly embraced by Walmart customers," notes a news release.
Shoppers can choose their delivery window, ranging from one hour to five days in advance.
According to a Walmart rep, the following B.C. communities now have access to Instacart on demand delivery:
- Port Coquitlam
- New Westminster
- Burnaby Metrotown
- Surrey (S)
- Maple Ridge
- Richmond (N)
- Vancouver (E)
- Campbell River
- Prince George
Walmart adds that some of the B.C. communities have more than one store in the area participating.
Instacart first began serving Metro Vancouver in February 2018, offering shoppers access to the Loblaw family of stores like Real Canadian Superstore and T&T.
