Roll out the welcome mat. Walmart is delivering quite a milestone to a doorstep near you.
Store 6459 in Harker Heights, Texas, just became the 3,000th store in the company to offer deliveries for online orders. The Neighborhood Market location, which sits just outside Killeen, celebrated the achievement on Friday. Store Manager Raymond Fowler calls it a huge upgrade.
“I am big on technology,” says Fowler. “If I can teach someone how to shop online and make it safer for them, I’m all for it.”
Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, Walmart has ramped up efforts to meet customer demand through safe pickup and delivery options across the country. Jacob Marshall is the Digital Team Lead at Store 6459. He’s played a crucial role in preparing the store’s delivery launch.
“I’m really glad to be a part of this aspect of Walmart because it’s a whole new branch,” says Marshall. “It will help us reach a lot more people.”
