LYNCHBURG, Va. (WSET) -- Walmart announced Wednesday that it plans to expand its online grocery delivery option to more than 40 percent of U.S. households by the end of the year.

The service will grow to serve more than 100 areas across the country.

“We’re serving our customers in ways that no one else can. Using our size and scale, we’re bringing the best of Walmart to customers across the country," said Greg Foran, president and CEO, Walmart U.S.

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.

The retailer will be able to shop for and deliver fresh groceries to customers with the help of more than 18,000 personal shoppers and crowd-sourced delivery services. Personal shoppers must complete a three week training program learning how to select the freshest produce and the best cuts of meat for customers.

Customers place their orders online at or on the existing Walmart Grocery App and there are no price markups.

Groceries can be delivered to customers as soon as the same day.

The service carries a fee of $9.95 with a $30 minimum order. No subscription is required.

Customers can get their first order delivered for free with promo code FRESHCAR.
