Walmart is teaming up with DoorDash to support its ambitious nationwide grocery delivery program.

According to a Walmart press release, the two companies will begin their partnership in the Atlanta metro area this year, and throughout the next several months, the two companies will broaden their partnership and expand into more markets as Walmart grows to reach more than 40 percent of USA households with delivery by the end of the year.

Walmart's personal shoppers and DoorDash drivers will allow thousands of Atlanta customers to shop online for their groceries and have them delivered to their houses.

Walmart has said that by the end of the year it aims to reach over 40% of US households with online grocery delivery service. Personal shoppers must complete a three-week training program to learn how to select the freshest produce and the best cuts of meat for online grocery customers. "We look forward to expanding across the country, enabling Walmart customers everywhere to spend more time doing the things they love".

Walmart Grocery Delivery brings customers the convenience of shopping when and where they want for quality, fresh produce, meat, seafood and bakery items, along with pantry staples, consumables and seasonal general merchandise.

For Walmart orders, customers simply select a delivery window and place orders via Walmart.com/grocery or on their existing Walmart Grocery App. Once Walmart personal shoppers have collected the groceries ordered, a DoorDash Dasher picks up the order from a Walmart store and delivers it to the customer during the designated time frame.

Walmart's Online Grocery Delivery costs $9.95 for a $30 minimum order. And in late February, Walmart's Sam's Club warehouse club chain began same-day grocery delivery through Instacart in Austin, Dallas-Fort Worth and St. Louis. The retailer is offering customers free delivery for their first order via promo code FRESHCAR with a $50 minimum order. The service, which has become a customer favorite and touted as a "Grocery Hero" for moms on the go and time-strapped families, is now available in 1,200 stores, almost 30 in Atlanta, with 1,000 more to be added this year. Each week, almost 270 million customers and members visit our more than 11,700 stores under 65 banners in 28 countries and eCommerce websites. Walmart continues to be a leader in sustainability, corporate philanthropy and employment opportunity. DoorDash provides the key "last-mile" delivery infrastructure for retailers and local and national businesses in more than 650 cities across the United States and Canada.
