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 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.
