It’s National Read a Book Day—but there’s no need to book it to the store for your next great novel. We're turning the page by introducing same- and next-day delivery for customers across our 231 locations nationwide. Teaming up with Walmart GoLocal—Walmart’s white-label, delivery-as-a-service platform—Books-A-Million customers are bound to embrace the joy of lightning-fast delivery for orders placed online.
“There’s nothing better than curling up with your favorite book or exploring a new world for the first time. We’re excited to introduce this new delivery offering with Walmart GoLocal, which will make it easier for customers to order their favorite books and have their favorite stories at their fingertips,” said Olivia McDaniel, Vice President of Marketing. “As retail and consumer preferences continue to evolve, we’re thrilled to be bringing our customers this added convenience and serve them in new ways,” said McDaniel.
Books-A-Million will be rolling out same- and next-day delivery in the coming weeks across its 231 locations nationwide, starting with its Southeast and Midwest markets. Customers will place an order online at booksamillion.com and select the “Same-Day Delivery” option during checkout. The order will then be picked up by a delivery driver and dropped off at the customer’s desired location. Orders placed before 3 p.m. will be delivered same-day, and orders placed after 3 p.m. will be delivered next-day on thousands of products that are in stock in a nearby store, including all top-selling books, toys, games, and collectibles.
Pete Zophy, SVP of E-Commerce, remarked, “We’re eager to hear customer feedback and are excited to enhance the e-commerce shopping experience. Ahead of the holidays, there’s no better time to introduce this offering and make it easier than ever for our customers to shop with us.”
We're proud to announce this game-changing service for our customers. Our partnership with Walmart GoLocal not only aligns with our commitment to enhancing customer experience but also showcases our adaptability in the ever-evolving retail landscape.
“Utilizing all of our stores nationwide for online delivery and fulfillment allows us to offer a fast, convenient, and frictionless delivery option for our customers and is essential to our omnichannel transformation,” said Olivia McDaniel
“It’s more important now than ever for retailers to meet customers where they are and offer a seamless e-commerce experience,” said Eliza Wendel, Senior Director and Head of Sales and Business Development at Walmart GoLocal. “We’re looking forward to powering Books-A-Million’s same- and next-day delivery offering and helping them deliver for their customers.”
