Walmart aims to get a foot in the fresh food business.
The giant retailer is launching an unlimited subscription service for grocery delivery this fall.
The service will charge an annual membership fee of $ 98 for subscribers to access unlimited delivery for the same day.
The service will be available in 1400 stores in 200 markets. By the end of the year, it will expand to a total of 1,600 stores – or more than 50 percent of the country.
This move allows the nation's largest grocery to touch time-hungry shoppers seeking convenience at a time when Walmart is looking for an advantage as it competes with Amazon and others to expand fresh food delivery ̵
"We know this level of convenience resonates with our customers," said Tom Ward, senior vice president of digital operations at Walmart US. "If you need milk, bananas and birthday presents, this is a fantastic solution. "
