Walmart Tests White Glove Shopping Service In NYC

Within Walmart’s Store No. 8 incubator in Bentonville, the retailer is testing a white-glove shopping service in New York City dubbed Jetblack and co-founded by Jenny Fleiss who joined Walmart last year.

Fleiss announced to the media Thursday Jetblack has been under beta testing with a select group of shoppers in Manhattan since the fall of 2017.

The cost of this white-glove shopping assistant is a monthly subscription price of $50. Fleiss did not say how many users are testing the service. She said it’s invite only and there is a waiting listing in Manhattan, with plans to roll it out to Brooklyn in the near future. For now the service is available to buildings with doormen. The goal is same-day delivery for requests made by 2 p.m.   MORE
