Walmart’s Jet.com Brick-and-Mortar Sells Fresh Groceries in New York City

Walmart’s Jet.com Brick-and-Mortar Sells Fresh Groceries in New York City

The concept store, Fresh Story, will be open for six weeks

The shop is located in Story, a retail concept that changes its products every four to six weeks.

Walmart’s Jet.com is giving customers a chance to have an in-store experience of some the company’s online offerings with a brick-and-mortar shop in New York City. The concept store, located at 144 10th Avenue, will sell a mixture of fresh produce, ingredients, and food-themed merchandise, from ice cream sundae-shaped candles to meal planning note pads.

The Fresh Story concept comes a year after Jet.com launched its grocery division online, in May 2016, The Street reported.

“We are thrilled to partner with Story to introduce Jet Fresh and showcase how we are innovating in the space of online grocery shopping and delivery,” Sumaiya Balbale, vice president of marketing at Jet, said in a statement.

Oliver Chen, an analyst at market research firm Cowen & Co., told Business Insider that having an in-store experience for consumers is “critical to the brand,” especially since it’s up against e-commerce giant Amazon.

“The future of retail is the integration of physical bricks and online clicks. This is true because the customer experience needs to address anywhere a customer wants to shop,” Chen said.

In addition to selling groceries and products, the store will also host events and workshops, including an evening with chef Mario Batali telling his food stories and sharing recipes on May 23; a beauty and health talk with Refinery29’s Editor-in-Chief Christene Barberich and lifestyle expert and entrepreneur Bobbi Brown on June 6; a “Females + Food” discussion with Jack’s Wife Freda’s Maya Jankelowitz and Cherry Bombe’s Kerry Diamond on June 13; and a cooking class for kids with The Creative Kitchen on June 8.

Wal-Mart news briefs: Jet deal in New York City, more bee friendly, preferred carriers named

Retail giant Wal-Mart is in the news daily given its size and global reach. This week Wal-Mart’s subsidiary Jet opened a pop-up store in Manhattan, the retailer was lauded for eliminating pesticides that threaten the world’s bee population and Walmart Transportation named its top carrier partners for the year.

JET POPS INTO NYC
Wal-Mart-owned Jet.com just opened a pop-up grocery store in Manhattan in partnership with Story, a concept-based retailer. The temporary Jet.com store will offer artisanal grocery and household items which will be combined with some e-commerce capabilities.

Jet.com President Liza Landsman said the retailer has no plans to explore brick and mortar, but the company saw this limited store-front deal as a way to showcase all the fresh products that Jet carries, adding this limited opportunity was “too good of a prospect to pass up.”

Landsman said Jet offers specially designed packaging for fresh items included tracking capabilities to allow for delivery efficiencies, something customers ordering online might not be aware of. She said items in the pop-up store are representative of how Jet thinks about categories. Jet sees this store as a way to educate consumers so that they can have an enjoyable online shopping experience with Jet in the future.

The Jet store in Manhattan will remain open for six weeks. The Story partnership also allows for workshops and cooking demonstrations during that period.

MORE BEE FRIENDLY
Wal-Mart Stores confirmed it has almost eliminated from its supply chain the neonicotinoid pesticides that threaten the world bee population. The initiative was part of the Friends of the Earth that encourages retailers to remove products containing neonicotinoids from the shelves.

The retail giant said its suppliers have eliminated neonics from approximately 80% of garden plants sold at the retailers and Wal-Mart has eliminated neonicotinoids in almost all its off-the-shelf gardening products.

“This is a great day for bees and sends an important message that the market is listening to consumers and sound science in refusing to sell bee-killing pesticides,” said Tiffany Finck-Haynes, food futures campaigner at Friends of the Earth U.S. “Friends of the Earth and our allies will continue to challenge Ace Hardware to eliminate these pesticides as quickly as possible to protect pollinators, people.”

Wal-Mart joins more than 110 retailers across the country, including True Value, Home Depot, and Lowe’s that have made firm commitments to eliminate neonicotinoids
