Walmart is expanding its grocery delivery options for customers across the United States. Its new program, entitled Delivery Unlimited, is a delivery option that allows Walmart customers to pay a yearly or monthly fee to have unlimited grocery deliveries.
The program was launched in four cities – Houston, Miami, Salt Lake City and Tampa, and will now expand to 200 metro areas. The Delivery Unlimited service is available in every market where the retailer’s grocery delivery option is available.
In Arkansas, Grocery Delivery is available in nine cities. These cities include Bentonville, Bryant, Fayetteville, Jacksonville, Little Rock, North Little Rock, Sherwood, Springdale and West Memphis.

According to Walmart figures, Delivery Unlimited is expected to be available in more than 1,600 – half of the country’s stores – by the end of 2019.
“We’ve been investing in our online grocery business by quickly expanding our Grocery Pickup and Delivery services. Delivery Unlimited is the next step in that journey,” Tom Ward, senior vice president, digital operations, Walmart U.S, said. “By pairing our size and scale and these services we’re making Walmart the easiest place for to shop. Combine that with the value we can provide, our customers can’t lose.”
Delivery Unlimited is available for a yearly fee of $98 or a monthly fee of $12.95. There is also a non-membership option that allows customers to pay per delivery.
To use the program, Walmart customers can place orders online or through the Walmart Grocery app. The groceries are then “shopped for” by Walmart associates. Walmart reportedly employs 45,000 shoppers to manage the Grocery Delivery service. The groceries are then delivered to the specified destination.
