BENTONVILLE, Ark. - Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. has launched a new one-hour digital photo service that integrates Wal-Mart and Sam's Club's online and in-store photo capabilities to provide added convenience to customers nationwide.
The new service allows customers to upload digital photos at www.walmart.com or www.samsclub.com; edit, share, and order images online; and pick up photo prints within one hour at a local Wal-Mart store, supercenter, Neighborhood Market, or Sam's Club location with a One-Hour Photo Center. Wal-Mart estimates that it will have 3,000 One-Hour Photo Centers by year's end.
The base price will remain the same for digital prints ordered in One-Hour Photo Centers at Wal-Mart or Sam's Club locations, according to the company. A 4x6 print costs 24 cents at all Wal-Mart stores, supercenters, and Neighborhood Markets, and 18 cents at all Sam's Club locations.
Wal-Mart and Sam's Club are also offering customers complimentary software called "My Wal-Mart (or Sam's Club) Digital Photo Center at Home," which equips home computers with functions similar to those in the photo kiosks at Wal-Mart and Sam's Club locations today. The software can be downloaded from the company's Web sites, or a hard copy can be picked up on Nov. 23 -- at no additional charge -- at any Wal-Mart, supercenter, or Neighborhood Market with a One-Hour Photo Center.
