Wal-Mart Tests Service for Buying Food Online
April 25, 2011
The New York Times reports, Wal-Mart has begun testing an online grocery delivery service, called Wal-Mart to Go, in the San Jose, Calif., area. The company has been expanding its online options, including a nationwide service that lets customers order merchandise (not food) online and pick it up in the store the same day. While that program is aimed at getting shoppers into stores more frequently, this one creates a more convenient way to buy from Wal-Mart. Wal-Mart declined to make executives available for interviews about the grocery test, which started Saturday.
