Walmart in an effort to compete with Amazon is introducing a online grocery service and it's now available in Tri-Cities and it's AWESOME!

I went online to Groceries At Walmart and registered for free.

It now means I can shop online and once I get my grocery shopping done, it tallies my bill and then I can pick up my groceries at the nearest Walmart.

I live in Kennewick, that's the store that pops up for me, making a short trip to the store for me.

I tried it and it's pretty awesome...avoid the lines and get your shopping done without the extra lines and effort.

You've got to love technology.
