Walmart Restructures Delivery Division, Ends Partnership with Skipcart
BOERNE, TX - In the grocery delivery space, Walmart is fixin’ to be on top—a goal that isn’t too lofty considering how much e-commerce and grocery delivery growth, innovation, and expansion it’s achieved over the last couple of years. However, with advancement comes change, and Walmart is no exception, with the retailer changing its partners list after parting ways with its grocery delivery partner Skipcart.
According to a letter obtained by Bloomberg, Skipcart informed Walmart, its partner since late 2018, that it would be moving on in order to focus on foodservice deliveries, effective April 30—a date that has since changed to March. The Texas-based grocery company currently delivers groceries for 126 Walmart stores in smaller markets in 32 states, with Skipcart’s Chief Executive Officer Ben Jones claiming the company handles about 50,000 Walmart deliveries a month.
