Walmart Goes Urban With FedEx Partnership
Walmart is testing a program with FedEx in two cities in which customers can order online through Walmart.com and pick up their order, free of charge, at local FedEx or Kinko's locations, Gather.com reported.
The program is seen as a move by Walmart to reach urban customers who do not live close to Walmart locations. It has begun in Boston and Los Angeles, but may expand further.
Walmart is also testing the launch of convenience stores in several cities.
