After unveiling plans to spend $45.8 million in Mississippi stores this year, Walmart is announcing the launch of its popular grocery pickup service at the Gulfport Supercenter at 9350 Highway 49, enabling customers to order groceries online and pick them up at their local Walmart store without leaving their cars. The best part: it’s at no additional cost. This popular customer convenience is part of Walmart’s commitment to lead retail innovation that saves customers time and money.
The addition of the Grocery Pickup service at the Gulfport Supercenter is just one of 18 Grocery Pickup services that will be added to Walmart stores across Mississippi this year. Additionally, Walmart’s plan to spend an estimated $45.8 million this year in Mississippi through the remodeling of nine stores.
“Our busy customers are going to love our free Grocery Pickup option,” said Mike McDavid, Gulfport Supercenter store manager. “They can now shop in a matter of minutes and pickup their groceries without having to leave their cars. It’s a huge time-saver which our customers value.”
How Walmart Grocery Pickup works:
- Order and Choose a Pickup Time: Customers visit com/grocery online or through the Walmart Grocery mobile app, enter their zip codes to select a local store and begin creating their shopping lists. During checkout, they select a time to pick up their orders.
- Personal Grocery Shoppers Fill the Basket: Highly-trained personal shoppers carefully select the freshest produce, meats and other items each customer requested.
- Pick Up and Go: Once a customer arrives at the pickup location, there will be reserved parking spaces marked in orange, and a designated number to call to alert an associate. An associate will quickly retrieve the prepared order and load it into the customer’s car.
