Walmart launches in-home delivery
Walmart has launched a new service, delivering fresh groceries and everyday essentials directly into customers' kitchens or garage fridges, for over 1 million customers in Pittsburgh, Kansas City (Missouri and Kansas) and Vero Beach, FL.
"We’re obsessed with simplifying grocery shopping and finding ways to make our customers’ lives easier," said Bart Stein, senior vice president of membership and InHome. "That’s why InHome goes the extra step so that our customers can live their lives without worrying about making it to the store or being home to accept a delivery."
Customers across Kansas City, Pittsburgh and Vero Beach can head to InHome.Walmart.com and see if their address is eligible. Next, they choose either the kitchen or garage fridge as the delivery spot.
At the time of delivery, associates will use smart entry technology and a proprietary, wearable camera to access the customer’s home — allowing customers to control access into their homes and giving them the ability to watch the deliveries remotely.
"With InHome Delivery, we’re putting more well-deserved time in the hands of our customers," said Stein.
Bringing this service to Kansas City, Pittsburgh and Vero Beach is just the first step for InHome Delivery. "It is a natural complement to our existing suite of grocery options, from shopping in-store to grocery pickup and delivery, including our recently expanded Delivery Unlimited membership," said Stein. "We’re looking forward to building on our already exceptional service in these markets through InHome Delivery and bringing this offering to even more customers in the months to come."
