New Walmart technology allows you to pickup an order in less than a minute

Steubenville, OH - Some good news for Walmart customers in Steubenville.

If you order online, you can now pickup your order in less than a minute.

Officials confirm it's all thanks to their new "Pickup Today Tower".

The 16-foot tall machine acts just like a high-tech vending machine.

Here's how it works.

When you order online, select pickup at checkout. 

Once the item arrives at your local store, you'll receive an email with a bar code.

Then, all you have to do is head to the store, scan your code, and let the pickup tower do the rest.

"I think this is going to add business for us. It's mainly to help speed up the process for customers and make it more convenient for them. You can process your pick up in less than seven seconds, in most cases, adding a lot of convenience for our online customers to get their orders," said Justin Nicholson, Steubenville Store Manger.

So far, Steubenville is the fifth store in Ohio to debut the new technology and one of only 100 in the entire country.
