Walmart trials new concept

| International retailers

Walmart has unveiled a new store concept in the US, as part of its drive into growing its online sales.

The new ‘Pickup and Fuel’ concept has been introduced at stores in Huntsville, Alabama and Denver, Colorado.  The 4,000 sq. ft. outlets operate from 5am to 11pm all week long, and offer a wider range of on-the-go food and beverages, both hot and cold.
 
The stores also offer fuel, and a drive-through pickup service for products bought via the Walmart.com shop.  The pickups can be made between 8 am and 8 pm, and orders placed online before 1pm can be picked up after 5pm on the same day.  
 
Walmart employees pick and pack the groceries at a nearby Walmart Supercenter, and load them into customers’ cars at the Walmart Pickup and Fuel for free.
