COLORADO SPRINGS — Walmart stores in Colorado Springs will now be offering a new grocery delivery service that will get customers their orders in less than 2 hours, according to a press release.

Walmart has been testing this service with 100 stores since mid-April and has now expanded it to 1,000 stores, including those in the Colorado Springs area.

"Express Delivery allows customers to order across more than 160,000 items from Walmart’s food, consumables and general merchandise assortment such as groceries, everyday essentials, toys and electronics," according to Walmart. The company said its Express Delivery service will be available to shoppers along with its current pickup and delivery options.

“We know our customers’ lives have changed during this pandemic and so has the way they shop,” said Janey Whiteside, chief customer officer of Walmart, in the release. “We also know when we come out of this, customers will be busier than ever, and sometimes that will call for needing supplies in a hurry. COVID-19 has prompted us to launch Express Delivery even faster so that we’re here for our customers today and in the future.”

To get Express Delivery, the customer will have to pay $10 on top of the existing delivery charge. They will need to go to their website or the app and search the zip code to see if it is offered. If it is, you can select "Express Delivery" at checkout.
