I'm not even kidding. This new service might have taken the pain out of grocery shopping. You have to try it for yourself.

I hate grocery shopping. No, actually I despise it. It always takes at least an hour of my day and the experience is never 100% pleasant. #firstworldproblems, right? That has all changed thanks to Walmart, the store many people dread but still shop at on a weekly basis. I mean, who doesn't like saving money, right?

Walmart is rolling out a new service called 'Walmart Pickup' at specific locations in Rockford, Belvidere, and Rockton. The service has already begun through walmart.com and through the Walmart Grocery app (which is what my wife and I used). Grocery shopping from your couch and picking up at your convenience never sounded so good, right? Sit at home and order the groceries online because you might spend less by not buying unnecessary items you might see in the store. This is what happened to use and we saved money. The online specials and price matching Amazon groceries are two great perks. Picking up your order is just as easy and quick, too.

When you download the app make sure you "OK" the notifications because they will be useful later. After opening the app you can choose the Pickup location closest to you and schedule when you would like grab your groceries, and then start shopping. After your order is completed and paid for you will receive a notification letting you know the order is ready for pickup. Click "Checkin Now" to let your personal shopper know you're on your way.

Through the GPS in the Walmart Grocery app they will monitor your location so that your order isn't outside until you're pulling into the brightly labeled "Pick Up" parking spots, there's also a phone number posted to let them know you're there in case you forget to check in. By the way, cold items are kept cold until you arrive. I was at Walmart for less than 10 minutes. You can here more about my experience by clicking here.

Give the experience a try and let me know what you think about this new service. Download the app, grocery shop from your couch, and when you're done download the Q98.5 mobile app. K? Thanks.
