Las Vegas Walmart to debut first pickup tower in Nevada

LAS VEGAS - Walmart will unveil Nevada's first pickup tower at a Las Vegas Supercenter on September 8.

The massive vending machine-like technology will debut at the Walmart Supercenter located at 5200 S. Fort Apache Road.

Customers will be able to order any product on Walmart's website, and once it arrives at the store a Walmart associate will load the products into the pickup tower.  The customer can retrieve items from the tower by scanning a bar code from their smartphone.

Las Vegas is the latest market to test the new technology.  In a press release, Walmart says the pilot phase has been so successful it has decided to expand the tests.

According to the press release, this is the latest in an effort to remodel stores with new technology and improvements such as:

  • State-of-the-art electronics department with interactive displays that allow customers to try laptops, tablets, mobile phones and more before purchase
  • Expanded sporting goods department and wider assortment of merchandise
  • Refreshed pharmacy with new consultation room
  • New fixtures and brighter LED lighting in produce department
