We’re excited to announce that we’ll be powering same day grocery delivery for Walmart shoppers in the San Jose Area. This announcement follows our recent collaboration with Walmart and August that allows customers to have their goods safely dropped off just inside their front door or their groceries placed in their refrigerator.
The San Jose delivery offering comes at a time when shoppers are expected to spend a record one trillion dollars on groceries, with a larger percentage of those dollars being spent online than ever before.
With consumers becoming expectant of convenient delivery options in the retail industry, we’re expecting to see a spike in the popularity of grocery delivery. Online grocery sales are forecasted to account for as much as 20 percent of all grocery sales by 2025 and convenient delivery will be a large part of that experience.
Overall, this is another example of retailers keeping pace with customer expectations and adapting to the new shopping experience. With Amazon’s growing online grocery business and move into brick and mortar, Walmart’s adoption of same day delivery allows for the retailer to remain a leader in the grocery space.
We’re excited to be a part of a more convenient shopping experience for consumers and retailers alike.
