Walmart expands Uber delivery test to more cities

Shoppers "love" the option, promotion utilizes giant fruits

Wal-Mart Stores said Monday that is was expanding its test of grocery home delivery through Uber to the Dallas and Orlando, Fla., markets.

Walmart began testing Uber delivery more than a year ago in Phoenix. “Here’s what we learned,” the company said in a blog post Monday. “Customers like you love the convenience of a delivery option.”

The Uber test is among several options for online order fulfillment being utilized by Walmart, which also offers click-and-collect pickup service at more than 900 stores and is testing associate delivery of online orders at some stores.

Customers choosing home delivery through Uber will be charged a flat $9.95 per-order delivery fee by Walmart, according to the Dallas Morning News. Walmart separately pays Uber.

Grocery pickup service is free for customers.

Walmart is promoting the delivery service with a fleet of specially outfitted cars with giant models of fruit and vegetables on their roofs.
