The Home Depot is working with Walmart to provide same-day or next-day deliveries to customers. 

The Home Depot and Walmart announced the partnership on Wednesday, with The Home Depot becoming the first retail client for Walmart’s GoLocal, a Walmart service that deliveries products for all kinds of businesses.

The Walmart GoLocal drivers will start taking The Home Depot deliveries at select stores in the next few weeks with the hopes to expand to more stores by the end of 2021.

“The Home Depot is continuously working to give customers the most convenient shopping experience in home improvement, and that includes providing a wide range of fast and reliable delivery options,” Stephanie Smith, senior vice president of supply chain for The Home Depot, said. “This partnership brings us even closer to our goal of offering same day or next day delivery to 90 percent of the U.S. population.” 

Products that will qualify for delivery in the beginning stages are ones that can “easily fit in a car.”

The partnership is hoping to expand in the future so there can be “same-day or next-day delivery options no matter the product or project – whether that’s a box of nails, décor items or big and bulky shipments of lumber, drywall or appliances,” Walmart said in its statement

“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,” John Furner, president and CEO of Walmart U.S, said. “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.”
