Posted by NBC News Staff | September 27, 2018 09:08:01 Walmart, Target, and BestBuy are offering online ordering for glasses online.
The news comes as a surprise as the glasses have become a hot topic for many, with the demand for these items being fueled by the #MeToo movement.
However, the new news comes after Walmart CEO Greg Hayes told investors that the company was looking at “other ways to deliver” glasses online, though he declined to comment further.
While it is unclear what that might mean for the company’s existing online ordering system, customers are already able to order glassware online through various retailers and online-only shops like Amazon.com, where you can place your order online for $25 or $100, respectively.
It appears that while there will still be an online ordering option for these products, it is not being added to the standard Walmart order system.
The news comes just days after Starbucks announced that its customers would be able to purchase glasses online for an additional $10 per order, and it is also unclear if that would include the same glassware option currently available for online ordering.
In an interview with CNBC, Best Buy CEO Mark Ritchie said the company had no plans to offer glasses online at the retailer.
“We don’t have plans to add it to the store, to sell glasses online,” he said.
However, Ritchie also said that the retailer will be working with retailers to expand its online ordering service.
Ritchie said that if the online ordering program were to expand to more retailers, it would likely include other products such as glasses, tablets, and other accessories.
It would be interesting to see if this move would affect how much of the glasses would be available online at any given time, and if that might affect the ability of customers to purchase them from a store, or from other sources.
