Walmart may soon launch same-day delivery

Walmart may soon launch same-day delivery

Target offers same-day delivery for in-store purchases to parts of New York City for a fee and will broaden that offering to more cities next year. New York City is a market of 8.5 million people without a single Walmart location to shop at. The acquisition price was not disclosed, though Walmart noted the deal was smaller than its previous acquisitions this year, which include Modcloth, Moosejaw and Bonobos. He noted that Parcel has partnerships with several meal kit, grocery and e-commerce companies.

It operates around the clock, and gives customers real-time updates on their order status via text. In addition to this latest step in growth, Jet.com has been testing free same-day delivery of certain orders to customers in New York City. This acquisition allows Walmart to continue testing ways to offer fast delivery while lowering operating costs. Walmart also announced that Parcel would continue to dole out services to existing customers, which are growing at a rapid rate, which adds another revenue stream for Walmart.

The service also helps Walmart tackle the problem of same-day delivery, which is a big problem to solve if the company wants to offer delivery options for perishable items like food.
