As the Canadian summer begins to draw to an end, and the nights become slightly cooler and darker, just the idea of winter coming back around is enough to give you shivers. However, following a new announcement from Walmart Canada and Instacart, there’s one chore that will seem a little less traumatic when winter rolls around again! Walmart Canada is brining same-day grocery delivery to stores across the nation! 

Gone are the days of loading your car up with shopping in the freezing weather, and sprinting across the parking lot with your grocery cart in the blistering wind. As of Thursday, August 15, you will be able to have your Walmart shopping delivered to you, straight to your door, on the very same day, without even having to get up from the couch!

Today, Walmart and Instacart announced that they would be rolling out their on-demand delivery services, after a successful pilot period in stores around Toronto and Winnipeg. From today, select Walmart locations throughout B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Newfoundland and Labrador, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and P.E.I will all offer the new service. 

Regardless of what you buy from Walmart, Instacart will be able to deliver it for you. Their services include the delivery of fresh fruits and vegetables, meat, seafood, and dairy, as well as over-the-counter medicines, beauty products, household goods, pet food and much more. 

Speaking about the new announcement, the CEO of Walmart Canada said, “By introducing more online shopping options at Walmart, we're helping make life easier and more convenient for [Canadians]."

For those who like to get super organized, the new delivery service will allow users to pick a day for delivery- up to five days in advance! For those who want their snacks and shopping immediately, there will also be an option to have it delivered in as quick as an hour! 

According to the news release, an Instacart personal shopper at your nearest Walmart store will pick, pack and deliver your order, within the timeframe that was requested by the buyer. Easy!

You can head over to the Walmart website from Thursday to start your shopping and get it delivered, whenever suits you.

For a limited time only, first-time customers of Walmart Canada and Instacart can use the code WMTCOAST2COAST at checkout for $10 off their first order of $35 or more.
