Online shopping for groceries and other goods has skyrocketed during the coronavirus pandemic, with Amazon and Walmart dominating our delivery needs. On Sept. 15, Walmart will launch Walmart Plus, a new fast delivery subscription service for groceries and other products you’d normally find in the big box store — positioning the retailer to more directly compete in the online shopping market with Amazon Prime.
Prime members in certain areas also get free grocery delivery through Amazon Fresh, which fulfills orders through Amazon warehouses instead of Whole Foods or another grocery store.
