Walmart to deliver in two days or less

Walmart has an e-commerce goal: Deliver to 95 percent of its consumers in two days or less. The big-box retailer opened a new fulfillment center, a 1.2 million sq. ft. space in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, last week, as one of four large distribution centers it plans to open this year. Walmart wants to be able to get online orders to most shoppers, whether by in-store pickup or through delivery, as fast as possible—another move in order to compete with Amazon, which offers Prime members free, two-day delivery service.
