business news in context, analysis with attitude

• The Triangle Business Journal reports that Walmart "has announced plans to begin offering in mid-May its first online grocery pickup services in the Triangle at five of its stores in Wake and Johnston counties."

At least in the beginning, Walmart will offer click-and-collect services for free, which will position the company as cheaper than competitors such as Harris Teeter and Lowes Foods, which, the story notes, have fee-based click-and-collect services.
