SALT LAKE CITY – Wal-Mart Supercenters in Salt Lake City are striving to make grocery shopping a more efficient experience, as Friday they launched their new online shopping and curbside pick-up program.

According to a press release, customers can now order groceries online and then pick them up at a participating store without having to leave their vehicle.

The press release states the program is available at four Wal-Mart Supercenters in the Salt Lake City area, and orders for groceries can be placed online at Walmart.com/grocery. More than 30,000 grocery items and consumables, including meat, dairy, produce and common household items, are available as part of the program.

“Anyone who’s in a hurry or doesn’t have time is going to just love it, cause they can pull up, get it right in their car, not have to get out: It’s going to save people so much time,” said Christine Ashment, an E-Commerce Market Coach in Utah and California.

Customer Mila Gleason used the service, and she touted its convenience.

“I was actually looking to make a recipe tonight, and I was missing one ingredient, and I didn’t want to go in for that one ingredient, so I just loaded up my cart with things I knew I needed anyway, mostly cleaning supplies, and I don’t have to go in,” she said.

The participating Supercenters will have special parking spaces for pickup customers, and Wal-Mart personal shoppers will load the groceries into customer vehicles. Wal-Mart said they expect the program to save shoppers money, because it will prevent them from binge shopping and picking up things on a whim.
