After activating more than 400 online grocery pickup locations this year alone, Wal-Mart Stores Inc. will open its 1,000th location tomorrow in Seattle, where it also is unveiling locations No. 995 through No. 999 of the service.
Originally piloted four years ago in Denver, the free service enables customers to order groceries online and pick them up at their local Walmart store without leaving their cars. Customers have access to more than 40,000 items through the service, including fresh produce and meat, pantry staples and seasonal items.
