7-Eleven to offer e-commerce pick-up sites for Walmart

by MM&D Online Staff

MISSISSAUGA, Ontario—Six GTA 7-Eleven stores will offer a Grab & Go Locker service for Walmart.ca customers to pick up their order, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, at no cost.

The announcement expands on Walmart Canada’s current Grab & Go Locker service which offers free shipping to 45 Grab & Go Lockers in the GTA.

“Partnering with 7-Eleven to expand our Grab & Go Locker service was a natural fit. Our goal is simple – we want to provide our customers with an online shopping experience that is easy and convenient,” said Simon Rodrigue, senior vice president, ecommerce, Walmart Canada. “We know our customers already use 7-Eleven stores in their daily routine. Now they can fuel up their car at their local 7-Eleven and pick up their Walmart.ca order in one easy stop, any day, any time, without paying shipping fees.”

Walmart Canada’s Grab & Go Locker service allows customers to order goods online and ship for free to a Grab & Go locker. Once the item is placed in the locker the customer is sent an email with a 6-digit PIN code. Customers then have 7 days to retrieve their items from the locker. Walmart’s Grab & Go Lockers are currently offered in select GTA Walmart stores, Walmart Canada Home Office, and Kapuskasing, Ontario.

Walmart Canada and 7-Eleven Canada Inc have agreed to a six-month pilot of the project to evaluate customer response and usage. 7-Eleven locations  in Brampton, Burlington, Mississauga, Toronto and Vaughan will offer Walmart.ca Grab & Go Lockers.
