Walmart plans to launch its subscription service this month as it throws down the gauntlet to Amazon Prime.

The US retail titan has been working on its own paid-for membership scheme, Walmart+, for around two years, as previously reported by Retail Week. 

According to Bloomberg, Walmart plans to launch the service in its home market before the end of July. 

Walmart+ will reportedly cost users $98 (£77) a year and include perks like same-day delivery of groceries and general merchandise.
