The free curbside pickup service, which first launched in 2015, allows customers to order groceries online and pick them up at their local Wal-Mart store without having to leave their cars. Wal-Mart currently has more than 800 stores nationwide that offers the service.

Customers can choose from 30,000 items including fresh produce, meats, organic groceries, and even back-to-school items online through Wal-Mart’s grocery page or the Wal-Mart Grocery mobile app. During checkout, customers can choose a time to pick up their orders.

When it is time to pick up, customers only need to wait at the reserved parking spaces and call a designated number. A Wal-Mart employee will retrieve the prepared order and load it into the customer’s car.

Customers can also pre-purchase plastic bags when ordering online, or have the employee bag the groceries in reusable bags brought by the customers.

The service doesn’t cost extra.
