Walmart to offer online grocery pickup orders in Ottawa
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.’’
