HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Walmart customers in the Pine Belt have a new convenient service they can take advantage of.

Online grocery shopping is being offered at the Highway 49 and Highway 98 locations in Hattiesburg. 

"I have three kids and it would just be easier for me just to pull up, I don't have to get out, so this is awesome, I'm excited," said Roseann Clark, of Hattiesburg, one of the first shoppers to use the service at the Highway 49 Walmart Supercenter. 

Shoppers can visit walmart.com/grocery to register for the program.

Walmart said it has up to 40,000 items to choose from, including fresh produce, meats and dairy products.

Each location has specific product inventory, delivery times and pickup schedules.

"When (customers) pull up to the sign they will call the phone number and we'll bring it out to them within five minutes, we have a five minute goal of getting it out to the customer," said Mark Lewellen, manager of the Highway 49 Walmart Supercenter. 

"We've spent two months training, we had to go through quality training for produce and meats," said Andria Layton, manager of the online grocery pickup at the Highway 49 Walmart Supercenter. 

The program can be accessed on a desktop computer or through a mobile app.
