Wal-Mart Looks For E-commerce Lessons From Asda's Online Business

April 21, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is evaluating the e-commerce operations and strategies of its UK unit Asda, with the goal of determining which components to adopt for its United States business. At present, Asda's online grocery delivery service covers 97 percent of the UK. At the same time, the UK retailer is expanding its click-and-collect platform currently offered at all of its 592 stores across the country. In February 2015, Asda acquired 15 gas stations as part of its plan to open 1,000 pickup locations by 2018.
