In the past year, Walmart has taken multiple steps to secure its spot as the largest big-box retailer. Now it seems it is looking to dominate e-commerce, as well. Last year, the chain started offering customers in the Bay Area Walmart To Go, a grocery home delivery service. Now it is expanding the project by running a beta test in Denver. However, the catch is that not everyone is eligible to participate: Customers must be invited.
The chain already offers home delivery of artisanal goods and same-day delivery for in-store products, which is in line with WalmartLabs’ expansion when it acquired OneOps and Tasty Labs earlier this year.
