Walmart Canada Beefs Up Ecommerce Offering
Walmart Inc. has rolled out its click-and-collect service to 22 Canadian locations in the cities of Victoria, British Columbia; Regina, Saskatchewan; Quebec City; Moncton, New Brunswick; and Halifax, Nova Scotia. Now available for the first time in Atlantic Canada, the service earlier launched at locations in the provinces of Ontario, Quebec, Alberta, British Columbia and Manitoba.
