  • Retailer adding 33 lockers to the existing 10 locations in the GTA
  • Keep your secret presents secret – ship your online order to a locker

MISSISSAUGA, ON, Nov. 28, 2014 /CNW/ – Walmart Canada announced today it is adding 33 Grab and Go lockers in the Greater Toronto area to allow more holiday shoppers to take advantage of the new service.

The retailer installed its first set of lockers at 10 locations in the Toronto area in August as part of its initiative to be the universal access point for the customer to get unbeatable prices for their full shopping needs whether through its bricks and mortar stores or through its digital platform.

“We want to provide customers with anytime, anywhere shopping convenience,” said Michael Memme, director of transportation at Walmart.ca. “The lockers are an intersection point between our physical and digital stores, providing a terrific option for customers buying presents during the holiday season that want to keep them away from prying eyes and little fingers. It’s also a very smart way for customers to send packages to friends and family with no delivery fee, especially when the customer is nowhere near the GTA,” added Memme.

Today’s announcement follows a series of initiatives Walmart Canada has launched over the past year to dramatically accelerate its ecommerce program. These include doubling its online product assortment on walmart.ca last year and again doubling the assortment this year, launching an online grocery assortment providing a broad range of dry grocery items, and launching free shipping throughout most of Canada.    

The new lockers are being installed in Walmart stores at the following locations between November 24 and December 5:

About Grab and Go
This new delivery program launched August 28, 2014 at 10 sites in the greater Toronto area. Grab Go offers additional pick up sites for those customers wishing to pick up at a Walmart store for convenience.

The Grab Go option is offered on site just prior to check out. Should the order qualify for Grab Go (must be less than 65lbs and no one dimension can exceed 2 meters. Grab Go locations will be offered to customers that reside within a 50km radius of a locker. The customer then selects the Grab Go site they wish to use prior to checking out. Customers will receive an email the next day confirming the order has shipped along with a 6 digit PIN code to access their order from the Grab Go unit. Once at the Grab Go site, the customer then enters their 6 digit PIN code and the compartment containing their package will open.

Customers have three days to retrieve their order. Should the item not be retrieved after the 3rd day, the item will be returned to Walmart.ca. The refund process will then begin.
