Lake Wales, Florida – The Lake Wales Walmart will join a handful of other Walmarts in Central Florida to offer online ordering and pickup of groceries starting October 25, 2015.

Customers reportedly can pull in to a designated parking area at their local store, where associates will load the items into their cars. The new service is suppose to give customers the ability to place an order and pick it up the very same day, Walmart said in a blog announcement.
