Walmart is expanding its $98-per-year unlimited grocery delivery nationwide in an effort to secure a bigger share of a market in which competitors like Amazon Fresh, Instacart and others offer similar plans. But delivering groceries, especially on the same day they’re ordered, isn’t easy.

Click the audio player above to hear the full story.

If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air.  But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.

Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.

When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.
