Walmart & Penguin Pick-Up Team Up

TORONTO, Jan. 12, 2018 /CNW/ – Grocery shopping just got faster and easier for Torontonians with today’s grand opening of two new Penguin Pick-Up/Walmart locations at Yonge and Eglinton and Queens Quay. With just a few clicks, consumers can place their grocery order online at walmart.ca/grocery, select a convenient time and location and enjoy free pickup of products, including frozen and refrigerated items.

With these new locations, Toronto residents now have greater access to Walmart’s fresh groceries available at low prices every day – all backed by a 100% satisfaction money-back guarantee. Customers can shop for fresh groceries, including fruits and vegetables, 100% Canadian AAA Angus beef, pork and chicken and seafood, dairy, baked goods, deli, frozen foods as well as health and beauty products, household supplies, pet food, baby food, diapers, and lots more.

“The new co-branded Penguin Pick-Up/Walmart locations allow us to better serve more Toronto households, especially those that don’t have a Walmart Supercentre nearby,” said Daryl Porter, Vice President of omni-channel operations and online grocery at Walmart Canada. “We continue to invest in services to make every day easier for busy Canadians and that includes offering greater flexibility and convenience to shop for groceries.”

Penguin Pick-Up has 76 locations across Canada, including 37 in the GTA, offering free and convenient pick-up locations for any and all online purchases. Customers can ship anything to Penguin Pick-Up from any online retailer in the world. Penguin Pick-Up offers a customer-focused drive through or walk-in experience that allows online shoppers to pick up their packages in 90 seconds or less. With extended operating hours, customers can collect their online purchases at a time that is convenient for them. Penguin Pick-Up is a “one-stop pick-up” for all e-commerce purchases, including groceries and dry-cleaning services. Penguin Pick-Up locations can store fresh and frozen food as well as hard goods such as electronics and apparel.

“The convenience of shopping for groceries online and being able to pick them up at a Penguin Pick-Up location at the time of your choice makes a lot of sense for people who live or work in dense urban neighbourhoods,” said Mitchell Goldhar, owner of Penguin Pick-Up and Chairman of SmartCentres. “Since its launch in 2014, Penguin Pick-Up has received packages from over 5,000 retailers in 11 countries and the number keeps growing.”

Today’s grand openings are the first two co-branded locations and bring the total number of Penguin Pick-Up locations offering Walmart grocery pickup in Toronto to seven. The two new co-branded locations also serve as a hub for Walmart’s direct-to-home Toronto grocery delivery orders, where customers living within select regions in Toronto can have their grocery orders delivered right to their door by local delivery partners.
