Walmart has announced plans to expand its Delivery Unlimited grocery delivery membership option to 1,400 stores nationwide this fall following successful trials in Houston, Miami, Salt Lake City and Tampa earlier this year. By the end of 2019, it’ll be offered at over 1,600 stores servicing more than 50 percent of the country.

With Delivery Unlimited, customers will have the option to pay a yearly fee of $98 or a monthly fee of $12.95 for unlimited Walmart Grocery Delivery orders. Shoppers will also have the option to pay a per-delivery fee, we’re told.

Like the competition, Walmart is employing various delivery services and personal shoppers to make the program a reality. The company said it has more than 45,000 personal shoppers on its roster that must complete a three-week training program to learn how to select the freshest produce and “best cuts of meat” for online shoppers.

Interested parties can head over to Walmart.com/grocery or use the Walmart Grocery app to try it out. Walmart is offering a 15-day free trial to see if the service is right for you.

I personally like going out to shop. There's an Italian store named Uncle Guisseppe's which has fresh Italian food, meats, cheese and sauces. I also enjoy going to groceries.

While I understand that there are older people who can't move around easily I personally wouldn't want to ever be so shuttered that I can't go out and shop for food.

I don't see myself ever doing anything like this.

It's surprising that the online prices will be the same as the prices at the store. Some basic items online currently cost 25% more, like their energy drink mixes, even if you pick it up at the store.
