Walmart, best known for offering products at wallet-friendly prices through its extensive network of physical stores, is setting records this month, driven by the success of its grocery offerings that continue to attract shoppers.
Meanwhile, Amazon isn’t satisfied with its penetration of the grocery sector and is extending its Amazon Fresh offering to non-Prime members.
Considering this, one can’t help but wonder if Amazon should concentrate on its expertise in eCommerce and let Walmart take charge of physical retail, especially since it’s doing anything but struggling in the realm of online commerce. Hear us out.
On Thursday, PYMNTS reported that Amazon is extending grocery delivery and free pickup services to all customers in any U.S. city or town where its Amazon Fresh grocery stores are accessible to Prime members. The service, previously exclusive to Prime members, simplifies the process for all customers to buy groceries, both in-store and online, according to Amazon’s statement.
