Courtesy of ABC 13 News Now - One of Walmart's enduring business strategies has always been to provide customers with what they genuinely needed in a cost-effective environment aggressively built on an unbeatable price structure. True to form, Walmart has recognized a need for home delivery of some of their most sought-after items as well as the groceries and produce carried by the Walmart Supercenters. The already established "curbside pickup" service which allows customers to stay in their vehicles, order from an app and have their purchase brought to their car without ever having to set foot in the store has been "kicked up a notch" to include residencies. In Virginia Beach, the retail giant rolled out their home delivery service recently for a nominal $9.95 fee per order. Walmart's newly upgraded app allows shoppers to search more effectively for hard-to-find merchandise and gives them an option of door-to-door delivery at checkout, assessing a fee for the service in the process. Marc Lore, chief executive of Walmart’s e-commerce business and the founder of Jet.com, elaborated in a blog post, "It just makes sense: We already have trucks moving orders from fulfillment centers to stores for pickup. Those same trucks could be used to bring ship-to-home orders to a store close to their final destination, where a participating associate can sign up to deliver them to the customer’s house." Virginia Beach's Walmart began the service on November 6th and first-time users may save on shipping by using the code "FRESHCAR" on a $50 purchase minimum.
