For modern parents, the grocery experience has changed drastically. From on-demand delivery to boxed services, there’s been no shortage of innovation in simplifying how we get groceries.
Recently, Walmart announced that they’re rolling out a new service, InHome, that takes it all to the next level. InHome is a grocery delivery service that uses smart entry technology to be able to deliver groceries into your kitchen or garage (and put them away!) whether you’re home or not.
Here’s how it works:
- First, visit InHome.walmart.com and select if you prefer kitchen or garage fridge delivery
- After you’ve signed up, a professional technician will come and install your smart lock in just a few minutes, and will walk you through how to use the service
- After installation, you’re ready for InHome! Order your groceries from Walmart Grocery and select “InHome” as your delivery option
- On your delivery day, a Walmart associate (a full time employee who has been working at the store for at least one year) will grocery shop, deliver, and put away your groceries. Basically, they take care of everything.
And here’s why we think it could be a game-changer for parents:
Walmart is EVERYWHERE
City-dwellers have had grocery apps for a few years. However, once you move out of major metropolitan areas, it’s a service that’s harder to come by. It’s no surprise that Walmart is all over the country and this addition could be a first step to finally bringing a time-saving resource to everyone. The pilot program is rolling out now in Kansas City, Pittsburgh, and Vero Beach. And they’re just getting started, InHome has plans to roll out to more cities in 2020.
You’ll get what you’re looking for
Walmart carries everything. Current grocery delivery services have left people wanting. There doesn’t seem to be one that carries all of the brands you want in a single order. But Walmart does, and they have the largest selection of organic produce in the country. The one-stop-shop has finally become the one-stop-on-demand-shop.
At the right price
The value found at Walmart is why it’s the leader in the space. Yes, there’s an added cost of the service, but right now most grocery delivery is tied to boutique shopping. It will be nice to bake the value of shopping Walmart products into the experience. And, there is absolutely no extra costs with InHome, there are no hidden fees, they don’t allow tipping, and the prices of items are the exact same that you’ll find in-store — so all you pay is your monthly membership and the cost of your groceries.
A state-of-the-art app
The demos of the app are impressive—to say the least. The focus seems to be on transparency and ensuring a great experience for the customer. You know exactly who is delivering your order, when it’s happening, and you have the ability to watch the delivery from your phone, in real-time!
“What’s for dinner?” “I’m hungry?” “Did you pack my lunch?”
Figuring out what to eat will always be a family struggle. Over the decades, the process of acquiring groceries has gotten better and better. The Walmart InHome service is definitely a welcomed addition and is sure to be a game-changer for parents across the country.
Even if the grocery store visit is nicely fixed into your routine, there are probably other things you could use your time for that are better than weaving in and out of grocery aisles. It’s exciting to see that the 2.0 version of grocery delivery is on its way. If you’re in Kansas City, Pittsburgh, or Vero Beach you’ll be in the first wave of the program. Let us know how it goes!
