The world’s largest retailer is set to launch a limited range of products to help customers enjoy their drinks better.
Dumb jugs, which are a cheaper alternative to disposable plastic containers, will be available at select stores in a move that could encourage customers to buy more and drink more at home.
Walmart UK is launching a limited collection of jugs at select UK stores in an attempt to help its customers enjoy drinks at home more, according to the company.
The company is selling a range of beverages from soft drinks to hot water and bottled water and also offering a range to non-food customers including soft drinks and fruit juices.
They will be priced at £4.99 per bottle, but will include a variety of different flavours and sizes including sweet and savoury, sweet and sour and savory and sour.
It is expected that the jugs will be sold at select retailers across the country, including Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, and Marks & Spencer.
But it comes as the supermarket giant said that the world’s most expensive jugs were becoming increasingly popular with customers.
A spokesperson said: We have heard from our customers that they are finding that their favourite drinks are available at cheaper prices in store and are now buying in bulk from their local Walmart store.
These new, low cost jugs come at an exciting time in the marketplace as we are seeing an increased number of convenience store outlets open and increase the number of customers who can take advantage of the convenience of being able to purchase a bottle at a store in person.
We know that many of our customers want to drink more as they are now more likely to purchase their favourite brands of soft drinks, fruit juices and hot water.
As part of the initiative, Walmart is also offering its customers a variety pack to take home with them.
While the drinks will be made available at some stores, the company is also encouraging people to buy the jug and have it delivered to their home or office.
“We are offering customers a range available to them from our home and office locations and at select Walmart stores around the UK,” the spokesperson added.
According to the spokesperson, Walmart has received over 6,500 complaints since the juge launch, with around 1,200 people having a positive response.
This includes some customers who are now shopping for the product, and a number who have already bought it.
However, the spokesperson also warned people that there are still a few things to be aware of before they decide to buy.
For instance, some retailers are not charging for the use of the product in the store, meaning they will not have the funds to pay for the jogging, so they can’t make money off of it.
“Some stores may also be unable to fulfil the orders for a certain period of time and some may require a deposit in order to get the product delivered,” the statement added.
This year’s Christmas shopping season has seen shoppers take to the streets to protest against the rise in the price of bottled water, as well as higher prices for soft drinks. “
Customers should also be aware that Walmart does not guarantee that the product will arrive at their home safely, even if they return it.”
This year’s Christmas shopping season has seen shoppers take to the streets to protest against the rise in the price of bottled water, as well as higher prices for soft drinks.
On Monday, shoppers from all over the world descended on New York City’s Times Square to protest at rising prices for bottled water in the city.
In response, the bottled water industry said that people are “free to protest” and “will be free to drink”.
“The price of water is still way higher than what people used to pay in the past,” the Coca-Cola company said.
“We have always been supportive of the efforts of the bottled beverage industry and want to encourage everyone to share in the discussion about the cost of bottled beverages.”
According the statement, shoppers will be able to buy “up to one jug” for £4 at the New York event.
