E-Commerce, Loyalty, Labor and Consolidation Loom Large in '19 

While 2018 was a challenging year for grocers, there is significant opportunity for those willing to adapt and pursue agile, customer-centric strategies.


Walmart Continues to Expand Grocery Delivery Service

The retailer is making the feature available in new metro areas by partnering with four last-mile solution companies.

The driverless, checkout-free Robomart vehicles will allow online shoppers to "pick their own" produce.

The delivery logistics company said the $25 million investment would support “hyper-growth.”

Similar to Walmart’s “Ajax,” the modular units can be built onto existing stores and can retrieve online orders in less than a minute.

The new filters allow shoppers to search for vegan, keto-friendly items and more to help them achieve their wellness goals.

Here are three tips for success we think will be critical in the coming year:

A new Brick Meets Click study finds that households that use an online grocery delivery or pickup service place more frequent orders and spend considerably more money per monthly orders.

The newly launched R1 self-driving vans, loaded with Fry's groceries, will "transform local commerce," co-founder says.

Once lucrative partners, Instacart and Whole Foods are now rivals in what could be an interesting test of shopper loyalty.
