Walmart to deliver groceries inside customers' homes

The online delivery wars are heating up inside shoppers’ homes. Walmart is now offering to have one of its employees deliver fresh
groceries and put them in your refrigerator when you’re not home.
The nation’s largest grocer said Friday that it would be offering the
service this fall for more than one million customers in three cities:
Pittsburgh, Kansas City, Missouri, and Vero Beach, Florida. Later this
year, the service, called InHome Delivery, will also accept returns for
items purchased on Walmart.com.
Two years ago, Walmart tested a similar service in the Silicon Valley
area but teamed up with delivery startup Deliv and worked with August
Home, makers of smart locks and smart home accessories. That test has
since been stopped.
The new service is part of Walmart’s drive to expand its shopping
options that include curbside pickup and online grocery delivery.
