In trying to compete with Amazon, Walmart is announcing discounts on thousands of items ordered online — if shoppers will then go to their closest store to pick them up. Starting April 19, if you shop online, you can about 10,000 items at a discount ranging from car seats to TV’s, as long as you’re willing to go and pick it up. This comes on the heels of Walmart announcing at the beginning of the year that nearly 2 million of it’s products qualify for free two-day shipping, with a $35 minimum purchase. However, there would be no minimum if they had the orders delivered to a local store for pickup.
