If you love shopping at Walmart for groceries, then you’re going to want to read about this new addition to the company.

Starting today (Aug. 15), the supercentre is rolling out its new grocery delivery service nationwide, set to bring customers the products they need straight to their residence as quickly as one hour after ordering online.

Instacart has signed an agreement with Walmart as the on-demand service for 200 of its locations across Canada, 31 of which are in B.C. and includes Prince George’s location in College Heights.

Here is the list of steps Walmart has provided on how to order its groceries for home delivery:

  • Download the Instacart app, or visit instacart.ca
  • Find local Walmart Supercentre and place order
  • Personal shoppers will shop on customer’s behalf for:
    • Fresh fruits and vegetables
    • Canadian beef, pork, chicken and a variety of seafood
    • Dairy
    • Baked goods
    • Deli
    • Frozen foods
    • Health and beauty products
    • Household supplies
    • Pet food
    • Baby products (food and diapers)
  • Items selected will be delivered directly to customer’s door in as fast as an hour, or at a later convenient date and time.

“Canadian families are busy,” explains Walmart Canada CEO Lee Tappenden in a news release. “By introducing more online shopping options at Walmart, we’re helping make life easier and more convenient for them. Expanding our relationship with Instacart provides our customers with even more time-saving ways to shop at Walmart in their community.”

This new option for customers in B.C.’s northern capital comes as a result of a pilot project between Instacart and Walmart, where 17 stores in Toronto and Winnipeg tested the service this past year.
