Walmart and Home Depot are working together to expand same-day and next-day delivery capabilities for home improvement customers. Walmart GoLocal will allow Home Depot customers to have another option for same-day or next-day delivery available in select markets. A variety of products will soon have the option to schedule delivery online, including tools, fasteners, paint and other supplies that easily fit in a car.

In fiscal 2020, The Home Depot saw sales on digital platforms increase 86%, with more than half of online orders fulfilled through stores. The company moved a record 1.2 billion cubic feet of products through its delivery network and achieved record sales of $132.1 billion.

“We’re honored to work with The Home Depot in our shared goal of making fast and reliable local delivery available in every community we serve, including rural and suburban areas, where we both have a strong retail presence,” said John Furner, president and CEO, Walmart U.S. “We’re excited to welcome The Home Depot as Walmart GoLocal’s first retail client and look forward to helping power their local delivery efforts.”
