It’s as easy as 1-2-3, Walmart declares, and it’s coming to Sallisaw’s Walmart.
It’s grocery shopping on line with free pickup.
Dustin Walters, Sallisaw Walmart manager, confirmed Thursday that the free pickup service was coming to the local store.
“We’re launching on April 17,” Walters said. “Our regular pickup service and photo lab at the back of the store is moving up front. Construction is to begin next week.”
Walters said the new pickup service will be located in the area that used to be the game room at the store’s front. The games in the game room have already been removed in preparation for the construction, he said.
“It will be like the general merchandise pickup,” Walters said.
Orders are placed online, and when the customer arrives, they park in a marked loading zone, use the Walmart app to let the store know they have arrived, and the groceries and merchandise are delivered to the customers’ vehicle. The service is free.
“We do the shopping for you and bring it to your car,” Walters said.
He added that Row 6 in the parking lot at the front of the store will be re-striped and branded as the pickup zone.
Employees are in training for the new expanded service, Walters said, and the expanded service means several new jobs will be added.
According to the Walmart website, the service is available from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
To place an order the customer:
Creates an account or signs in to an existing Walmart.com account. If you already have a Walmart.com account you can use the same email address and password to sign in to grocery.walmart.com. And if you create a new account here, you can use the same sign in information at Walmart.com.
Reserve a pickup time. You can do this before you start to shop to make sure you get the time slot you want, or you can wait until you’re ready to place an order. You can book a timeslot up to three weeks in advance, but they expire if you do not complete your order.
Pay for your order with a credit card. Walmart cannot accept cash, gift cards or other forms of payment at this time.
