Walmart is introducing a new on-demand home delivery service in Richmond.

Following a 17-store pilot in the Greater Toronto Area and Winnipeg, the company in partnership with Instacart is now offering deliveries in as fast as an hour from nearly 200 stores across the country including 31 in B.C. 

Customers can download the Instacart app or visit to find their local Walmart Supercentre and place their order.

Instacart personal shoppers will shop on the customer’s behalf for Walmart’s fresh selection of groceries, including fresh fruits and vegetables, Canadian beef, pork, chicken and a variety of seafood, dairy, baked goods, deli, frozen foods, as well as health and beauty products, household supplies, pet food, baby food, diapers, and much more.

Items selected will then be delivered directly to customers’ doors in as fast as an hour or at a later date and time that’s convenient for them.

This solution is part of a suite of services including grocery pickup and home delivery offered by Walmart to help its customers shop where, when and how they want.

"Canadian families are busy. By introducing more online shopping options at Walmart, we're helping make life easier and more convenient for them," said Lee Tappenden, president and CEO of Walmart Canada.

"Instacart is proud to have grown its partnership with Walmart Canada to help make it even easier for valued customers to get the groceries and household essentials they need quickly and easily," said Nilam Ganenthiran, Instacart's chief business officer.

For a limited time, first-time customers of Walmart Canada and Instacart can enter the code WMTCOAST2COAST at checkout for $10 off their first order of $35 or more.
