Food Shopping at Walmart

April 25, 2017

Need to go grocery shopping? Try Walmart! They have a large selection of food at “rollback” prices. You’ll find the vast majority of items you would at a regular grocery store, and they even have a bakery.

 

Walmart carries a combination of store brand and brand name items. They have a decent sized produce section that carries the trending ready-to-prepare foods such as cleaned and sliced vegetables and pre-portioned fruit. As already mentioned, there’s a bakery with a wide variety of items. You will also find a large freezer section, several aisles of pantry items and a large dairy case. Their prices are pretty consistent and often lower than Tops or Wegmans.

 

I was a little hesitant at first buying fresh foods from Walmart. So far, my experience has been pretty positive as I’ve been happy with everything I’ve purchased.

 

Save even more at Walmart with Savings Catcher. Scan your receipt using a smartphone or tablet or upload receipt information on your computer. Walmart will then compare their prices to advertised deals in the area. If any deals beat their price, you will receive the difference on an eGfit Card. How cool is that?

 

No time to go shopping? No problem! There is now Walmart Grocery, which is a pickup and delivery service. First, you need to go online and create an account. Then you order what you need, including items that require freezing/refrigeration, and schedule a pickup. Go to the store at the time you selected and your items will be there waiting for you. As of right now, the locations in Niagara Falls and North Tonawanda are offering this service. There is no fee, but a minimum order of $30 is required. For areas that have delivery, these items can be delivered right to your home for a fee. It seems as though this is not an option for Western New York at this time, but Walmart Grocery is relatively new, so stay tuned for more options!
