By the end of 2018, the company hopes to have them available in over 2,000 stores. Additionally, the service will not require a subscriptions, like main-stream kits. The retail giant will now be offering meal kits and simpler "one-step meals" in over 250 stores. However, some have struggled to keep the attention of their subscribers. What separates Walmart from the group is that it would not require a subscription.

The meal kits also take a shot at meal kit providers such as Blue Apron and HelloFresh, which do not have brick-and-mortar partners to help alleviate the cost and complex delivery process associated with the meal kit segment.

Walmart Will Soon Bring Meal Kits to Thousands of Stores Move over Amazon, Walmart is now producing its own brand of pre-portioned kits priced between $8 to $15. Amazon also unveiled in February it will start delivering groceries from Whole Foods through its two-hour Prime Now delivery service.

Shares of Walmart opened Monday near $88, with a consensus analyst price target of $105.57 and a 52-week trading range of $69.33 to $109.98. These are exactly the same kits you tend to get through services like Blue Apron, which tend to involve more preparation and more original foods.
