BENTONVILLE, Ark., March 7, 2024 — In the fast pace of modern life, time is our most precious asset. Walmart understands this deeply and is committed to making life easier for our customers. Walmart is at the forefront of innovative solutions that simplify shopping experiences, from pioneering curbside pickup in 2013, to introducing doorstep and InHome delivery in the years since.

As the clocks change for daylight saving time, Walmart is stepping up to save our customers even more time with our latest delivery offering: Express On-Demand Early Morning Delivery. Starting at 6 a.m., earlier than ever before, customers can enjoy the convenience of On-Demand delivery. This expanded timing offers them peace of mind knowing they can get things they need at their doorstep to kickstart the day.


From A to Z – Walmart has you covered

With hundreds of thousands of items available in-store and hundreds of millions more online, customers can easily get what they need during the early morning hours from fashion to furniture and beyond in as soon as 30 minutes. For instance: 

  • Baby essentials: Being a parent is a round-the-clock job, and running out of diapers or formula in the early hours of the morning can make anyone fussy. Early Morning Delivery allows parents to rest easy, knowing they can get crucial items delivered straight to their crib.
  • Work attire: Spilling coffee on your work shirt before an important meeting can be stressful. On-Demand Early Morning Delivery is ready to step in as a solution to those last-minute wardrobe malfunctions. You can even add a few more items, like a lint roller, wrinkle-release spray and a travel pack of stain removers, to ensure you conquer the day in impeccable style.
  • Home appliances: Preparing all your smoothie ingredients the night before should be a breeze, that is until you wake up to discover your blender is broken. But there's no need for panic. Just take a deep breath. With our Early Morning Delivery option, your kitchen savior is just a click away. Whether you need high-speed powerhouses for blitzing fruits or versatile hand blenders, we've got you covered for every culinary requirement.
  • Outdoor supplies: Starting mid-March, Walmart will begin delivering live bait from more than 3,000 stores – a real catch when you want to hit the lake early. Whether it's tents or comfortable camping chairs for lounging under the stars, customers can add them to their cart, and they will be delivered to their door.

Our commitment to convenience extends beyond just the early hours. It’s about making shopping seamless for the customer. With features like Late-Night Express Delivery, Live Shopper for real-time communication with Shoppers and On-Demand Delivery for same-day convenience, Walmart prioritizes putting the power in the customers' hands. It’s a superpower that’s simple – all customers need to do is open the Walmart app or Walmart.com and begin selecting their items. And for Walmart+ members, standard delivery is always free.

As we continue to innovate and accelerate, the message is clear: Shopping should be personal and as tailored to fit your lifestyle as those freshly-delivered work shirts. With Walmart's On-Demand Early Morning Delivery and a suite of other convenient options, we’re making sure you have what you need, when you need it so you can reclaim your time no matter what the clock says.
