Retail operator Walmart Canada has expanded its Grab & Go locker network to include 7-Eleven convenience stores located in the Greater Toronto Area. The partnership will operate on an initial six-month pilot with Grab & Go lockers installed at six 7-Eleven locations.
Excluding the new locations, Walmart Canada has 45 Grab & Go lockers located throughout the Greater Toronto Area, which are free of charge for customers to collect items from 24/7.
Simon Rodrigue, senior vice president, e-commerce, Walmart Canada, said, “Partnering with 7-Eleven to expand our Grab & Go Locker service was a natural fit. Our goal is simple we want to provide our customers with an online shopping experience that is easy and convenient. What better partner to help us achieve this than the world’s largest convenience retailer. We know our customers already use 7-Eleven stores in their daily routine. Now they can fuel up their car at their local 7-Eleven and pick up their Walmart.ca order in one easy stop, any day, any time, without paying shipping fees.”
Raj Kapoor, vice president and general manager, 7-Eleven Canada, said, “The Walmart Grab & Go Locker service is a natural extension of our quality convenience offering. We know that our customers look to us to give them a one-stop shopping experience, so we’re pleased to be able to offer them this additional service. We’ll continue to listen to our customers and will evaluate the success of this pilot on an ongoing basis.”
