Walmart is expanding its online grocery ordering to San Diego next week with four stores participating in the program.
Shoppers will be able to place orders online and pick up groceries at stores in Poway and Chula Vista starting Wednesday, and Vista and Escondido starting Thursday.
Orders are filled by full-time Walmart associates and delivered curbside to a customer’s vehicle in a special area of the store’s parking lot.
Walmart has been testing the program since 2015 and steadily increasing the number of stores where it is available.
“Our customers have told us that grocery pickup is a game changer. They are now able to complete their grocery shopping in a matter of minutes — between errands or on their way home — without ever getting out of the car,” said Dori Wilbert, Walmart’s eCommerce market coach.
There is no fee for the service, and no markup over regular prices. Order can be placed online or via an app.
