Grocery shopping with three kids is not fun even at the best of times. One of the kids are always tired or cranky, the requests to buy the extras are relentless, someone always has to go to the bathroom or get changed (never at the same time of course), and it’s always a process that takes us at least a couple of hours. This is where online grocery shopping has been a lifesaver for me and I was super excited to try out the new Walmart.ca Grocery Pickup.
Convenient & Easy
In between naptimes and evening activities I created my online order switching between Walmart.ca and the Walmart.ca App. One of the convenient features for me through the Walmart App is the barcode scan option which lets you scan grocery items in your home and add them right to your order.
Walmart offers the same prices online and in-store and you can also ad match prices advertised by other competitors. With a great selection of No. 1 grade fruits and vegetables, a large selection of organic produce as well as 100% Canadian Angus beef, chicken, pork and salmon, having the option to have fresh, affordable food delivered right to your vehicle is just another way for you to be able to shop within a budget and have more time to do the other, more fun things in your life.
After I was finished shopping I picked the date, time, and location that worked with my schedule and paid for my order. Using the Grocery Pickup Option is just $3, which honestly is worth my sanity. There are also 6 Walmart.ca Grocery Pickup locations that you can pick up at within Edmonton & St. Albert so you can pick the location that’s most convenient for you.
- Northwest Edmonton Supercentre – 127th Street NW
- South Common Supercentre – 1203 Parsons Road NW
- Windermere Supercentre – 6f110 Currents Drive NW
- Edmonton Northeast Supercentre – 40th Street NW
- EdmontonWest Supercentre – 18521 Stony Plain Road NW
- St. Albert Supercentre – 700 St. Albert Road
The location that I chose was the St. Albert Supercentre and when I arrived, I parked in the designated Grocery Pickup parking spot and called the number posted on the sign. The Walmart associates brought my groceries out to my vehicle, asked for my I.D. to verify that it was my order, and placed the groceries in my trunk.
They also went over my order with me to let me know that there were no substitutions that had to be made and all items in my order were included.
Bringing my groceries home
Being the first time that I have ordered any fresh food through Grocery Pickup I was a little nervous. When I arrived home, I went through my order with a fine-tooth comb. Were the apples bruised? Was the bagged salad fresh with an expiry date that wasn’t tomorrow? Did my meat choices come wrapped properly and also appear fresh?
Honestly? There wasn’t anything that I would have changed or replaced in my order. However, had there been an item that didn’t meet my standards Walmart has a 100% satisfaction and a money-back guarantee on all fresh food.
Other great options
I can’t tell you how many times we’ve gone away only to come home and realize that we need to go grocery shopping. Going into an actual store and getting everything that we need is less than desirable and my energy level at this time is at -100… It’s also probably likely that if I do go, one of these kids will be with me, and I’ll grab every convenience item instead of the fresh food that I really should be getting.
One of the great things about Walmart.ca Grocery Pickup is that you can place your order up to 21 days ahead of time so when you’re preparing for going out of town you can also place your order to have it ready for pickup when you get back. I call that a checkmate!
