Wal­mart to of­fer online gro­cery pickup or­ders in Ot­tawa

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - BUSINESS - THE CANA­DIAN PRESS

Wal­mart will of­fer gro­cery pickup for the first time in Canada start­ing next week at lo­ca­tions in the Ot­tawa area, and it says it's pre­pared to roll out the ser­vice to other cities if de­mand war­rants.

The $3 ser­vice will al­low peo­ple to place or­ders through Wal­mart Canada's web­site. The or­ders must be a min­i­mum $50 and made at least the pre­vi­ous day.

Si­mon Ro­drigue, Wal­mart Canada's se­nior vice-pres­i­dent for elec­tronic com­merce, said the com­pany has been work­ing on the ser­vice for more than a year and de­cided to launch it in Ot­tawa be­cause the city has been a strong mar­ket for e-com­merce.

“The other thing is Ot­tawa gives us a great cross-sec­tion of Canada,” Ro­drigue said in a phone in­ter­view Fri­day from Ot­tawa.’’
