Walmart urges you to order groceries online and pick them up free without skipping a beat in your day, in one of its latest ads, promoting the Grocery Pickup service.
The 30-second commercial features a busy mother of two, who takes her daughter to the dentish, drives to her son’s school to bring him his tuba, and goes to work. When she receives a notification in the Walmart App that her grocery order is ready for pickup, she drives to a Walmart pickup point, where an employee puts the shopping bags in the trunk, without being necessary for the customer to get out of her car.
“Use the Walmart Grocery App. Order online. Pickup for free.” onscreen lines read at the end of the commercial, which sees the entire family around the table, at dinner time, and also urges viewers to get the Walmart Grocery App, available for download on Google Play and App Store, today.
The soundtrack music is the 1977 hit single “Help Is on Its Way” by Australian rock band Little River Band, from their third album, “Diamantina Cocktail”.
With Walmart’s Grocery App, people can shop the retailer’s food selection online anytime, anywhere and then choose a convenient pickup time and location near them. Moreover, they can enjoy free same-day pickup when they order before 1pm and then they show up at their preferred location, an employee will load their car in minutes.
Walmart’s Store Pickup is valid only for items that have a “pick up” option. Items like perishable products or those containing hazardous materials, any product weighing in excess of 350 pounds, and products sold through a Walmart Marketplace Retailer may not be available. Once chosen the store they’d like to pickup from, customers will receive a confirmation email for their order, as well as a notification once their item is available for pick up. Items that have a “Free Pickup Today” are usually available four hours from the time of purchase. Any Same-Day
Pickup order placed after 4:00pm may be available for pick up the next day. Upon arrival at the store’s Services/Pickup desk, customers must provide a valid photo I.D. in order to be able to pick up their package.
