The backbone of Walmart Grocery, the Walmart Supercenter has the widest selection of groceries and provides most of the products for delivery services.

Self-pickup facility is available at stores between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Orders placed are dispatched in slots depending on the time of order. Convenience stores called Walmart Pickup and Fuel also offer same-day pickup for groceries ordered online. Currently, there is just one outlet that facilitates this service, but if extended they could grow fast thanks to the small size of the stores and parking lots.

Walmart Grocery has a total of 46.1 million products across 921 stores that offer same-day delivery. Amazon’s online grocery delivery service Prime Now only has an average of 900k products across 32 cities.

It was surprising to see the category ‘Beauty & Healthcare’ with the highest number of products. Walmart is stocking up its shelves with an assortment of private beauty brands at an affordable price to keep up with the new items landing in the market.

Walmart Grocery vs Amazon Prime Now

The expansion of Walmart’s Grocery marks the culmination of years of technology investment, store remodeling and partnering up with delivery services. Walmart has been testing grocery delivery for quite some time now, slowly opening up in few markets at a time. Being the largest grocer makes this service more affordable to Walmart than its rivals, which is a key edge to its business expansion plans.

While comparing product numbers, Walmart Grocery has a clear win over Amazon Prime Now. The chart below shows a comparison between the total number of products available at Walmart Grocery and Amazon Prime Now:

It looks like Walmart has made a major jump compared to Amazon Inc. and is advancing its efforts with a new level of urgency to gain more customers. Amazon Prime Now, which debuted in 2014 in New York City and expanded to 32 cities by 2017, provides free two-hour delivery from Whole Foods in four cities, as part of its annual $99 Prime subscription.

Amazon could be the biggest online consumer site but when it comes to groceries, Walmart is anticipated to maintain a clear lead.

Number of Stores across the U.S.

Walmart provides online grocery services to 47 states, with a majority of its stores placed in the east coast. The only states where Walmart Grocery hasn’t started  yet are Montana, North Dakota and Wyoming.
