Don’t feel like braving the crowds at the grocery store? Have plans that don’t include grocery shopping? If you live near one of six south Louisiana Wal-Marts, you’re in luck.
Wal-Mart is offering its grocery pickup service at several stores near Baton Rouge, including 308 N. Airline Highway in Gonzales; 904 S. Range Ave. in Denham Springs; and 17585 Airline Highway in Prairieville, according to The Advocate. In addition, a few New Orleans-area stores will offer the service: 880 N. U.S. 190 in Covington; 300 W. Esplanade Ave. in Kenner; and 167 Northshore Blvd. in Slidell. Customers can order their groceries online, then pick them up curbside at participating Wal-Mart stores.
“Our customers have told us that grocery pickup is a game-changer,” said Ken Wesner, who manages the Covington store, according to The Advocate “They are now able to complete their grocery shopping in a matter of minutes — between errands or on their way home from an after-school activity — without even unbuckling their seat belts.”
