Walmart Launches Free Next-Day Delivery To Compete With Amazon
Walmart Launches Free Next-Day Delivery To Compete With Amazon Walmart’s new next-day service will be available for 220,000 popular items, ranging from nonperishable foods to toys and electronics.
The retail giant has reportedly been building a network of e-commerce distribution centers across the country in order to support the service.
Their announcement came just two weeks after Amazon announced their own intent to upgrade from free two-day delivery to one-day.
Walmart’s service is currently only available in Phoenix, Arizona, and Las Vegas, but will soon expand to Southern California.
Unlike Amazon, Walmart’s next-day shipping will not require membership fees.
Walmart plans to roll out their service to 75 percent of the U.S. population by the end of 2019, as well as increase qualifying products by hundreds of thousands as the program expands.
