Cornershop is an express delivery service that customers can use to order groceries on-demand in as quick as 60-minutes, and its popularity and convenience influenced Walmart’s decision to expand the partnership.

Walmart Canada is also Cornershop’s first official partner outside of Latin America as the retailer works to reinforce its commitment to bringing the latest technology and services to customers.

Walmart Canada’s suite of services includes grocery pickup and home delivery offered to help its customers shop where, when and how they want, in-store or online.

“Customers in the GTA have more choices than ever for how to shop for on-demand groceries at Walmart,” said Daryl Porter, vice president of eCommerce operations and logistics at Walmart eCommerce. “By introducing more shopping options at Walmart, we’re helping make life easier and more convenient without compromising on our everyday low prices. Cornershop and other delivery services are one way that we can provide that easy, convenient access.”

"Toronto is our first market outside of Latin America, making it a special city to everybody on our team. We’re excited about our progress thus far and we’re proud that our partnership with Walmart in Mexico and Chile helped us earn the trust of our new partners at Walmart Canada,” said Oskar Hjertonsson, founder and chief executive officer of Cornershop. “We offer customers consistent, high-quality service for on-demand groceries delivered from Walmart stores in Toronto, Mississauga, and more cities in the near future."
