CULLMAN - Both Wal-Mart locations in Cullman unveiled grocery pick-up services on Wednesday.

At the Olive Street Wal-Mart, Store Manager David Roberts explained, “Wal-Mart is already dedicated to saving people money, but this service will help save the one thing you can’t buy: time.”

The way the program works, he said, is “as easy as 1, 2, 3.” Online shoppers simply (1) download the grocery app or go to https://grocery.walmart.com/, (2) shop for their items and reserve a pick-up time and (3) visit the stores to receive the groceries. Shoppers using the pick-up service park in the designated pickup spots at their reserved times, and associates bring the groceries out to the cars. Shoppers can also request to see some of the products chosen by the personal shopper (the associate who collected the groceries ordered online) to make sure they are the desired quality, though Roberts assured everyone that the personal shoppers “will choose only the best.”
