Watch out for the DeLorean: Walmart latest Boise-area grocer to add online pickup

Walmart Stores has applied with the City of Boise to add an area for online grocery pickup at its store on Overland Rd.

The retailer will also do a minor remodel on the store to relocate a stock room to service the drive-up grocery service.

The concept is gaining steam around the country and in Boise. Kroger Co.’s Fred Meyer launched ClickList at its local stores in 2017, and select Albertsons locations are adding drive-up lanes or parking areas at several stores.

The concept works similarly for each grocer, allowing shoppers to put together their grocery order online, then slide by the store and have groceries placed in their cars without getting out.

Walmart began advertising the service nationally with a TV campaign featuring famous pop culture cars – like the DeLorean from Back to the Future, Mystery Machine from Scooby Doo Where Are You?, KITT from Knight-Rider, the ambulance from Ghostbusters and more.
