WalMart Stores Inc has announced plans to test its grocery delivery service with ride-hailing companies Uber and Lyft in the next two weeks in Denver and Phoenix.

That’s in addition to a quiet pilot program that started in March with Deliv for its Sam’s Club customers that involves delivery of general merchandise and grocery for business members in Miami, Florida in the US.
