Favored supermarket now lets you buy groceries online
Online shopping is moving into the grocery business.
How would you like to order you groceries online – and then pick them up all ready to go? Or have them delivered to your home?
Wal-Mart has started a test program to see how well the idea works.
Right now, the program is offered in Denver and San Francisco – but could be soon be a nationwide thing.
Customers have the option to order online, and pick up at the store.
You don’t even have to get out of your vehicle.
Wal-Mart says the time is right for this pilot program to study customers’ evolving habits.
Forrester Research predicts online grocery shopping will be an $18 billion market this year.
Wal-Mart has more than 4,200 stores nationwide.
Customers also have the option to have them delivered by a refrigerator truck.
The fee? $5 to $7. No tips allowed.
