Walmart joins forces with Instacart to boost same-day delivery credentials

Walmart store

Walmart has joined forces with Instacart to offer same-day delivery in four US markets as it seeks to rival Amazon’s rapid fulfilment proposition. 

Walmart products will be available to purchase via Instacart in San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego in California, as well as Tulsa in Oklahoma, as part of the initial trial. 

Shoppers will be able to purchase groceries, alcohol and home decor items to be delivered to their homes in as little as an hour. 

The proposition could be extended into more markets if it proves successful.
