New Walmart Delivery Service Puts Groceries in Your Fridge
It's not yet available here in the Treasure Valley, but I'd bet they roll it out nationwide at some point.
Walmart is offering a new service called InHome grocery delivery, that will not only deliver groceries, it will bring them inside your house and put them in your fridge, CNBC reports.
InHome launched in three cities Tuesday: Kansas City, Pittsburgh and Vero Beach, Florida. The service costs $19.95 per month; it also requires the purchase of a $49.95 smart door/garage lock kit, which includes free installation and a month of unlimited grocery delivery.
The kits will turn existing deadbolts into a smart-lock, and won't require homeowners to change their keys. Employees will have to have worked at least one year for the company, and will have to pass background and motor vehicle record checks, along with extensive training.
Walmart employees will be given a one-time access code and the deliveries will be livestreamed. Any of the 30,000+ grocery items listed on Walmart's current grocery app will be available for delivery.
As our lives get busier and busier, it's no surprise that some people, or maybe a lot of people, would be totally fine with a complete stranger entering their home to put groceries in their fridge when they're not home.
I wouldn't mind skipping the grocery store, unloading from the car, hauling in and hauling into the fridge every week. That's time consuming! And at the end of a 12 hour day, I don't have the energy to do it all.
If Trader Joe's offered this, I'd be all in. Maybe.
