Walmart will expand grocery delivery service to the greater Baltimore region and surrounding areas, including Glen Burnie, Cockeysville and Laurel, the retailer announced Monday.
The company will partner with DoorDash, a delivery app, to offer grocery delivery beginning Aug. 14. After an order is placed, produce and other items will be selected by a “personal shopper,” and a Walmart store associate will notify the DoorDash delivery person when the order is ready.
Customers can select a one-hour window for delivery.
Walmart will charge a fee of $9.95 fee for each order placed. The service does not require a subscription. Tipping is optional and should be provided in cash, a Walmart spokeswoman said.
The company joins the growing ranks of retailers that offer home delivery for groceries. In March, Target announced a subscription delivery service with the company Shipt.
Shipt also offers same-day deliveries from Safeway.
