Walmart ends Jet fresh delivery in New York

Walmart, Inc., Bentonville, AR BB #:143789 is ending its fresh food delivery service in New York from its Jet subsidiary.

According to a report from Bloomberg News, Walmart will close its Bronx warehouse, but it will still deliver dry goods and general merchandise.

“We learned a lot by testing Jet fresh grocery delivery in New York City,” Walmart said in an email. “We’ll continue to test bold concepts that can offer convenience to customers.”

“We recognized the important role our stores play in providing an efficient way to offer groceries to customers,” Walmart said. “We will focus our grocery pickup and delivery in markets where we have this incredible opportunity.”

In June, Walmart repositioned Jet to focus on customers in large cities where Walmart had few or no stores.
