MENLO PARK, Calif., Nov. 17, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Deliv, a leader in the same day delivery space, today announced that they will power same day grocery delivery for Walmart shoppers in the San Jose Area.

“Customers are busier than ever – they’re looking for ways they can free up time on their calendars, and with Deliv, we’re here to help,” said Sylvester John, senior director of eCommerce Operations at Walmart U.S. “After working with Deliv on other initiatives, we know they share our obsession with customer service and recognize the need to provide unparalleled value and convenience to our shared customers.”

The service comes as consumers are expected to spend nearly one trillion dollars on groceries this year according to Fung Global Retail & Tech. Approximately 90 percent of consumers shop for food and household supplies every week. Largely because of the convenience it offers, ecommerce grocery delivery saw massive growth. It is expected to continue to shake up the traditional grocery industry as online grocery sales are forecasted to account for as much as 20 percent of all grocery sales by 2025.

To take advantage of Walmart’s same day grocery delivery service, customers located within the service area* simply order from walmart.com/grocery and select a delivery window at checkout. After orders have been picked and packed by Walmart personal shoppers, Deliv drivers retrieve the orders from local Walmart stores and deliver them within the customers’ pre-selected delivery windows. Customers receive a notification when deliveries are on their way, and a signature is required upon receipt so that no grocery items are left unattended and food always remains fresh. Scheduled deliveries are available from 8am-8pm seven days a week.

“Walmart is a tremendous brand, dedicated to delivering the greatest possible experience to its shoppers. This includes offering greater delivery options for every type of purchase so that people can shop when and how they want,” said Daphne Carmeli, Deliv CEO and co-founder. “We are delighted to work with Walmart on another great initiative. Together, we will deliver the new era of grocery ecommerce.”
