Report: Wal-Mart pilots online grocery service in Phoenix market


Bentonville, Ark. – Phoenix area consumers have a new option for online grocery shopping, at least for now. According to the Phoenix Business Journal, Wal-Mart is piloting an online grocery service in and around Phoenix.

The service allows consumers to order groceries online for in-store pickup. Employees pick the goods and load them in the customer’s car curbside. Prices are the same as in-store and there is no extra fee for the service, but there is a $30 minimum purchase limit. Currently, Wal-Mart is testing the service at one store in Phoenix and two stores in Mesa, Arizona, but hopes to expand the pilot o other area stores.

Wal-Mart has offered a similar service that includes home delivery in San Jose, California since 2011 and in Denver since 2013. The retailer has also offered a pickup-only service in Bentonville, Arkansas, where its corporate headquarters are located, since 2014.
