Grocery pickup will be expanded to more than 40 stores by the end of 2019 and grocery delivery will be added to 36 stores.
Walmart also plans to add 22 pickup towers to stores across the state. Pickup towers are 16-feet tall vending machines which can fill a customer’s online order in less than a minute once they arrive at the store. Customers scan a barcode on their smartphone to retrieve purchased items.
The company also will expand its FAST Unloader technology to 44 stores. The FAST Unloader automatically scans and sorts items that come off trucks based on priority and department, allowing associates to spend less time unloading.
And finally, Walmart will start using autonomous floor scrubbers to clean concrete floors in stores.
