A trip to the grocery store takes time and money (especially if you’re shopping while hungry), which is one of the many reasons online grocery shopping is gaining in popularity these days. Walmart Grocery is no exception; the shelves are stocked with 160,000+ grocery items including fresh produce and dairy, meat and seafood, household essentials, and (depending on your state’s laws) even alcohol. Online ordering is easy via walmart.com or the Walmart app, and you have two ways of getting your goods—curbside pickup or delivered to your door.
