I personally would never let another person choose (or even touch) my produce, especially a walmart employee. They'd just give you whatever is on top...

^ true, when it comes to produce, even i know that its best to pick your own stuff. But i can imagine, stuff like milk, canned items etc, shouldnt be a problem
A group of students started a company in my college town that did this. They made a lot of money off of drunk kids ordering cases of beer, frozen pizzas, and rubbers at all hours of the night! I think this will actually benefit a lot of walmart shoppers who can't get around the store very easily and the elderly who even have a hard time leaving home. I think it's a good move.
Now you're just mashing it!
They need to have some type of guarantee about the quality of perishable foods. The grocery store in my area does this type of thing and I have never used it because of those exact reasons of picking my own produce and meat.
People just get lazier over time :D. I never knew this even existed...
Yup, it's been around for quite some time now. Where I'm at they have an online shopper that you can order just about anything/ You want a steak dinner from that fancy resturant, but don't want to go get it? Get your shopper to go get it for you. I've never used it, but my old roomate who was handicapped used it every now and then. It is a nice convience for some.
Now, as a Wal-Mart associate, I've heard rumors about this, and personally, I think that they are going to shoot themselves in the foot. There's no denying it, as anyone with a brain knows how Wal-Mart really makes their money. They get you in the door for one or two items, then snag you for a few more that you originally didn't want/need. With people being able to order just what they originally wanted, don't know if the increased food sales online will cover the difference.
And, yes, I for one would never let ANYONE(my ex-fiance included) choose my perishables(produce, millk, etc..)
Its like in the movie Wall-E where everyone on the spaceship get fat and lazy because every thing is done for them...lol

i live a 1/2 hour away from the nearest grocery store, and the gas prices now, i think it's win-win.
I'd want to pick out my own perishable goods (meat, produce, etc), but for canned goods and other stuff, I can see where this might be convenient, particularly if you're strapped for time or for the elderly who may not be able to easily go to the store.
wow we are getting lazy...walmart thank you for getting me fat :(
I'm a delivery driver for AmazonFresh.com and my customers are not fat or lazy. Mostly people who work a lot and don't want to spend what little free time they have at the store.
