Wal-Mart is testing a new self-service pickup building at a store in Oklahoma.
The company recently began testing the 20-by-80-foot center in Warr Acres, Okla., which can fulfill hundreds of online orders per day, Wal-Mart spokesman Scott Markley told The Packer.
More than 30,000 items, including produce and other fresh items, can be ordered online and picked up free. The minimum order amount is $30.
The items are stored in refrigerators or freezers in the pickup center, which is in the parking lot of the Warr Acres store.
At the center, consumers enter a code and retrieve their order within a few minutes. The pickup point is designed to operate 24 hours a day.
“All year long our customers are looking for ways to save time and money,” Markley said. “Especially for busy families with kids, grocery shopping used to take a couple of hours on the weekend. You can now pick up your groceries in just a few minutes and have more time back in your day.”
