Walmart rolls out drive-up grocery service in Portland, Salem

Walmart is introducing a new grocery program that enables shoppers to order items online and pick them up at a nearby store.

The program is now live for a handful of stores in the Portland area, as well a store each in Woodburn and Salem.

The announcement comes as grocers and startups throughout the nation are providing more ways for shoppers to order and receive groceries. There are meal-kit subscriptions, grocery delivery services like Amazon's Prime Now and Instacart, and click-and-collect programs like Walmart's.

Just last year, Kroger rolled out a similar service, ClickList, at local Fred Meyer stores. Currently, several Oregon Fred Meyer stores offer the service, and more are on the way.

Walmart's new service will offer more than 30,000 products, including produce, meat and seafood, dairy and bakery items, plus health and beauty products.

Unlike Fred Meyer's program, which charges about $5 per order (the first three are free), Walmart's service comes with no fee. However, there is a $30 minimum purchase requirement.

In addition, Walmart's program allows for same-day pickup, while Fred Meyer's requires customers to order at least one day before pickup.

Walmart is rolling out the program in several U.S. markets on Tuesday. Here are the Oregon stores participating in the program:

  • Southeast Portland – 4200 S.E. 82nd Ave.
  • Hillsboro – 7650 N.E. Shaleen St.
  • Sherwood – 21320 S.W. Langer Farms Pkwy.
  • Wood Village – 23500 N.E. Sandy Blvd.
  • Woodburn – 3002 Stacey Allison Way
  • Salem – 1940 Turner Rd S.E.

How it works

  • Visit walmart.com/grocery and enter your zip code.
  • Browse the products and add them to your cart. (Online prices are the same as local Walmart stores.)
  • Proceed to checkout, where you'll choose a store and a time to pick up your order.
  • Your order is filled by a Walmart personal shopper.
  • You will receive a phone call when your order is ready, along with a specific pickup location at the store.
  • At your scheduled time, you'll drive to the store, park in a designated parking space and call in your order. An employee will retrieve your order and load it into your car.
  • Though the service is only available at six Oregon stores now, Walmart plans to expand the program to more areas in the coming months.
