Walmart is taking the wheel to make grocery shopping even easier for customers in Lafayette. The retailer is expanding its popular Grocery Delivery service to bring delivery to the doorsteps of Lafayette, and its outlying areas like Broussard.

Here’s how it works:

Order and Choose a Pickup Time: Customers visit or through the Walmart Grocery mobile app, enter their zip codes and begin creating their shopping lists. During checkout, they select a time to for their order to be delivered. At the time of checkout, customers will pay the delivery fee. No money is exchanged at the customer’s door.

When customers are creating their order, the search feature at the top of the screen makes it easy to directly search for the exact item they need to add to their cart. Customers can also filter items that meet their special dietary needs too, like gluten-free, paleo and non-dairy products.

Highly trained personal shoppers carefully select the items each customer requested.

Delivery partners will be requested by a Walmart grocery associate when the order is ready to be delivered, who will then drive directly to the customer’s location during the one-hour delivery window they chose.

Customers can get their first order delivered for free with promo code FRESHCAR with a $50 minimum order.
Here’s how it’s different:

No Subscription Required: Walmart’s Grocery Delivery service offers customers their essentials as soon as the same day with a $9.95 fee.

No Hidden Fees: Unlike other services where a banana costs more online than it costs in the store, Walmart’s everyday low prices are the same no matter how you shop. If the cost of an item changes from the time the order is placed to the time it is packed and ready for delivery, the customer will always be charged for the lower price.

More than Groceries: Customers can use grocery delivery to purchase items outside the grocery aisle. Toys, Baby, Beauty, Electronics and much more are also available for pickup.
