Walmart Inc will expand its grocery home delivery services to reach more than 40 percent of US households, or 100 metro areas from an existing six, as the retailer steps up a fight against rival Amazon.com Inc.

Walmart is partnering with Uber and other crowdsourced delivery companies to transport groceries to customers' doorsteps.

The move will complement Walmart's rollout of curbside grocery pickup, which is now available in 1,200 stores and will be added to a 1,000 more stores this year. Walmart already employs more than 18,000 personal shoppers for its online grocery programs, and the retailer plans to hire thousands more to power the national expansion. In its Wednesday release, the grocer reports customers can enjoy delivery on fresh produce, meat, seafood, baked goods as well as "pantry staples" and general merchandise.

"Our commitment goes further than saving customers money", Tom Ward, vice president of digital Operations for Walmart U.S., said in the release.

The retailer also offers an Online Grocery Pickup service that allows customers to order their groceries online and pick them up in stores without ever getting out of their cars.

Groceries can be delivered to customers as soon as the same day. Walmart's Online Grocery Delivery carries a simple USD9.95 fee and a USD30 minimum order. Amazon recently debuted free two-hour Prime Now grocery delivery from Whole Foods in four cities, free for its annual $99 Prime subscribers. Amazon launched a free two-hour Whole Foods delivery service for its Prime members in four USA cities with plans to expand to more locations later in 2018. Customers can get their first order delivered for free with promo code FRESHCAR.

It makes sense for Amazon to give shoppers the option of picking up their groceries as well, cutting out one extra step - and cost - for Amazon.
