Walmart Inc. (WMT) on Thursday announced Holiday schedules for its stores across the U.S. that involves extending store delivery hours, adding additional delivery windows for customers and adding more items to the list of what can be delivered from the local store.

Walmart is extending the store delivery hours by two hours until 10 p.m. local time. Customers would be allowed to place orders up to 6 p.m. for same-day or next-day deliveries. Customers would also be allowed additional time to amend orders already placed.
