Walmart May Become Your Personal Assistant

Walmart is taking some aggressive steps to make sure they are your number one choice when shopping.

The discounter has just announced an official personal shopping service that combines “the convenience of eCommerce with the customized attention of a personal assistant.”

The new service allows customers to order any item they need with a text message. Walmart will deliver the products the same or next day for no additional charge.

One catch. There will be a monthly fee. Walmart feels there are enough people in America that would be willing to pay $50 a month for this major convenience. It’s like having a personal assistant.

The name of this service is called Jetblack. If you don’t like texting, you can call a Walmart representative. Don’t make that call just yet. Walmart is testing this new service now in a limited number of places and will then roll it out nationwide.

I will post more details when it is official. I just wanted you to know about it now..

  1. Older people may need this service, but I don’t see younger people, who have no difficulty getting around, paying any money to have the privilege of selection and delivery. So far, I see several stores who do this without charge, but maybe I’m dreaming to think they can continue! Thank, Lois.
