Walmart to stock groceries in your frig

Retailers like Walmart, Amazon and Kroger have been delivering groceries to homes, but now, Walmart is taking it a big step further: going into your home to stock your fridge.

So no more worries about that milk souring on your doorstep while you're out of the house.

Its so-called InHome Delivery service works like this: Customers order groceries online.

A Walmart associate does the shopping, then goes from the food aisle to your fridge.

The associate will use smart entry technology to enter the home and wear a body camera so customers can control access to their homes and watch the delivery being made on their mobile devices.

Walmart will use its own workers to make the deliveries unlike the third party workers used when it tested the service two years ago.

Service starts this fall in three cities - Kansas City, Missouri; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and Vero Beach, Florida.

No word yet on pricing.
