LANSING, Ill. (May 20, 2018) – Ordering groceries is as easy as clicking a few buttons, thanks to Walmart’s new online grocery delivery. The new service is currently accepting grocery orders with deliveries available as early as Thursday. Delivery is available to all homes within a 7.5-mile radius of the Lansing Walmart located at 17625 Torrence Avenue.
Some residents of Calumet City, Hammond, and Munster will also be able to take advantage of this new service, if their homes fall within the 7.5-mile limit. Darnella Singleton, Lansing Walmart’s eCommerce Manager, said that only the Lansing, Plainfield, and Bolingbrook locations are offering delivery service as of now, meaning a great opportunity for Lansing residents to try something new.
And, according to Singleton, the delivery service is quick and easy to use. She said, “If the customer chooses the delivery option, they’ll input their address, and the driver brings the delivery directly to the door.” Singleton also stated that in-store pick-up is also an option for customers. “Once the order’s ready, they’ll just drive to the side of the building and pick it up there,” she explained. The pick-up option is always free and has been available to guests since April, as reported in this April 4 article.
The official unveiling of Walmart’s new delivery service featured lots of fun, including nearly 400 cupcakes, a local DJ and radio personality, and freebies for customers. Bria Fachon from Power 92.3 handed out coupons and information to guests and was joined by local DJ just.one, who provided the event’s entertainment.
On their way in and out of the store, customers stopped to talk about the new service and pick up some goodies. Many people seemed excited to try the new service.
