Walmart is testing grocery deliveries with Uber and Lyft
The limited trial will begin in Denver and Phoenix, with drivers dropping off your shop at your front door.
So far, this limited trial is kicking off with Uber in Denver and, according to Business Insider, Lyft in Phoenix. Rather than paying the driver directly, Walmart shoppers will be charged between $7-10 per delivery. The company is also testing a similar service with Deliv, out of its Sam's Club stores in Miami. Grocery deliveries are becoming a big deal, with firms like Target and Amazon hoping to elbow-out more established players in the market. The fact that Walmart is leveraging Uber and other ride-sharing companies is, in a way, a tacit indictment of its failure to get this going with this soon enough.
