With not a single Walmart store within city limits, the United States’ largest retailer hasn’t been much of a player in the country’s largest city.

But that could change very soon as Walmart leverages its Jet.com e-commerce brand — headquartered across the Hudson River in Hoboken, New Jersey — to take over the Big Apple.

Walmart is now building a fulfillment facility for Jet in the Bronx. Opening this fall, the facility will be designed to deliver fresh grocery items, consumable goods like toothpaste and paper towels, and some other merchandise to New York City addresses, either the same day as ordering or the next. The plan is for the warehouse to stock only items sold on Jet.
