US-based women’s clothing and accessory retailer Chico’s FAS has partnered with Walmart GoLocal to offer same-day deliveries.

The collaboration will allow Chico’s, White House Black Market and Soma customers to receive their online orders in as little as two hours.

The service is currently available in Chicago, Illinois, and Fort Myers, Florida, with plans to expand it into additional markets next year.

Chico’s FAS CEO Molly Langenstein said: “Getting our customer what she wants, when she wants it, is another step in our ‘digital first’ customer centricity transformation.

“Whether delivering a last-minute black dress, pair of pyjamas or a new pair of jeans, partnering with Walmart GoLocal offers a convenient delivery option and yet another way we’re able to deliver on our promise of bringing women confidence and joy.”

The partnership with Walmart GoLocal is intended to improve Chico’s FAS delivery capabilities and allow its brands to expand their services.

Walmart GoLocal was launched in August as a new delivery-as-a-service business.

Walmart US last-mile senior vice-president Tom Ward said: “We’re excited to work with Chico’s FAS, Walmart GoLocal’s first fashion client, to bring added convenience to the lives of families in communities of all sizes across the country.

“Whether they’re shopping for something new for their closets or for their weekly grocery haul, we know customers everywhere are starved for time and hungry for convenience.

“The beauty of Walmart GoLocal is our ability to customise the service to businesses of all sizes and offerings and give shoppers time back, no matter what they’re looking for.”

In October, US-based home improvement retailer The Home Depot partnered with Walmart to improve its same-day and next-day delivery capabilities.

The companies initially delivered tools, fasteners, paint and other supplies that can fit easily in cars.

They plan to expand the service into other markets across the US by the end of the year.
