Walmart has a new strategy to speed up delivery and curbside pickup orders.

The retailer announced its plans to build automated mini-warehouses in dozens of stores.

They will be nearly 30,000-square-foot fulfillment centers either in the backroom of stores or next to them.

Robots will gather thousands of items instead of employees and then the employees will assemble the orders.
