The Home Depot announced it is the first retail client of Walmart GoLocal which uses Walmart’s expansive network to deliver products for businesses of all sizes. Through Walmart GoLocal, Home Depot said more customers can receive same-day or next-day deliver on a variety of home improvement products.

“The Home Depot is continuously working to give customers the most convenient shopping experience in home improvement, and that includes providing a wide range of fast and reliable delivery options,” Stephanie Smith, senior vice president of supply chain for The Home Depot, said in a prepared statement. “This partnership brings us even closer to our goal of offering same day or next day delivery to 90% of the U.S. population.”

Walmart GoLocal drivers will begin delivering orders from select Home Depot stores in the coming weeks, according to Home Depot. The retailer plans to expand the service to multiple markets across the United States by the end of the year. Customers shopping on can see which products are eligible for delivery through Walmart GoLocal and other same-day or next-day delivery partners by looking for the Scheduled Deliver shipping option.

“We’re honored to work with The Home Depot in our shared goal of making fast and reliable local delivery available in every community we serve, including rural and suburban areas, where we both have a strong retail presence,” John Furner, president and CEO, Walmart U.S., said. “We’re excited to welcome The Home Depot as Walmart GoLocal’s first retail client and we look forward to helping power their local delivery efforts.”

Home Depot’s partnership with Walmart is a component of the retailer’s comprehensive delivery network. The retailer’s network is designed to offer quick and reliable delivery to both pro and DIY customers. Home Depot also offers the ability for customers to place orders online and pick them up in a store from a service desk, a locker, or curbside. The company saw sales on digital platforms increase 86% during the 2020 fiscal year, with more than half of the online orders fulfilled through stores.
