business news in context, analysis with attitude

The Fayette Advocate reports that Walmart "plans to expand its same-day grocery delivery service called 'Walmart To Go' to a new market: Denver, Colorado. This move follows the company’s ongoing grocery delivery tests which have been taking place over the last couple of years in San Jose and San Francisco. The Denver area test is currently a closed beta, meaning customers will be allowed to trial the new service on a first-come, first served basis only."

The story says that customers can "designate a two-hour slot for their delivery, then the orders are fulfilled by local Walmart Supercenters and delivered in Walmart To Go trucks ... The company is still experimenting with price points for this service, it seems, as they note that the Denver area delivery fees will be 'in the $5 to $10 range'."

You have to look at this expansion in the context of Amazon Fresh's expansion to Los Angeles, likely to San Francisco, and probably eastward from there.
