Global retailer Walmart has partnered with DoorDash to expand its Online Grocery Delivery programme in Atlanta US.

The move by the retailer is in line with its plans to reach more than 40% of the US households by the end of this year.

The retail chain, with the help of its 18,000 personal shoppers and DoorDash’s delivery network, will deliver groceries to customers’ doorsteps in Atlanta metro area.

Under the deal, Walmart will offer a three-week training programme for its personal shoppers on how to help customers to choose products using the delivery programme.

Walmart US president and CEO Greg Foran said: “With the expansion of our Online Grocery Delivery program, customers can have great items at every day low prices delivered to their door with the click of a button.

“With the help of DoorDash, we’re delivering the best of Walmart to customers in Atlanta and beyond.”
