Walmart grocery pickup comes to Baton Rouge area
BATON ROUGE - Walmart says it changed “the grocery shopping game” after announcing that customers can now shop for groceries from the comfort of their own home.
The largest grocer in the United States announced Thursday that three Walmart locations in the Baton Rouge area will now allow customers to order groceries online and pick them up without leaving their cars.
“Our customers have told us that grocery pick up is a game changer,” Walmart’s eCommerce market coach Brent Rome said. “They are now able to complete their grocery shopping in a matter of minutes – between errands or on their way home from an after school activity – without even unbuckling their seat belts.”
Walmart says the new grocery pickup program will feature 30,000 items, including fresh meat, dairy, snacks, diapers and pet food. All the prices will be the same as in store.
Customers can visit Walmart.com or through the Walmart Grocery mobile app for iOS to begin creating their shopping lists. Then, “highly-trained” personal shoppers will fetch the items in store. Customers then can select a time for pickup and have their groceries delivered to designated parking spots at the store.
The new program started Tuesday for the following Walmart locations:
Walmart store #532, 308 N Airline Hwy., Gonzales, LA 70737
Walmart store #935, 904 S Range Ave., Denham Springs, LA 70726
Walmart store #5056, 17585 Airline Hwy., Prairieville, LA 70769
