Walmart wants customers to deliver packages in return for discount
Walmart is considering a new plan to have store customers deliver packages to online buyers in exchange for a discount.
The retailer says it's trying to compete with Amazon and other online retailers. The new system would work by giving customers the option to sign up as a mini delivery service for Walmart.
They would agree to take packages to people in the area where they live in return for a discount on their shopping. That discount would also cover the cost of the gas.
