Walmart originally planned to unveil Walmart+ in late March or April, Recode reported in February, but the retailer pushed back the launch date after the Covid-19 pandemic began sweeping across the US in March.


Counterintuitive.  People not wanting to go out so a retailer delays launch of online option?  People blame COVID19 for everything.

I'm not a big fan of loyalty clubs -- especially the kind that charge admission.  While I like the idea of delivery, the logistics are tough and you are relying on others to select fresh stuff.

It would very much interest me to have free grocery delivery as Amazon does not offer that in my area! Thank goodness we can do pickups at Walmart - but trying to get a time slot is not always easy.

Our Walmart has gotten much better with their pick up times. Although, I have to admit Sam's club has really come through with their curbside pick up. I also love their "scan and go" feature in the app.
