Walmart advertises its free same day Pickup service in a new ad, highlighting that “‘Tis the season to order groceries online and pick them up free”.
The 30-second spot opens with a mother who receives a notification informing her that her grocery order is ready and goes to Walmart, with her son, to pick it up. Returning home, the entire family starts preparing the Christmas meal with fresh ingredients bought from the retailer, such as meat, butternut squash, sprouts, other vegetables, and more. When everything is ready, they all go to their new neighbors, who have just moved in, to spend the evening together, around the table filled with delicious dishes.
“Light Up Christmas. Order groceries online. Pickup for free. ” onscreen lines read at the end of the commercial, which is scored by the 1968 single “I Thank You” by Sam & Dave, from their album “I Thank You”.
