How Walmart will win online grocery

By Gina Acosta - 01/25/2018

Walmart has filed a patent for an online grocery service allows shoppers to accept or reject produce picked by the retailer's employees.

According to Business Insider, the new technology could solve one of customers' biggest gripes about online grocery shopping: that they don't get to select their produce and could therefore end up with bruised or discolored items.

The “Fresh Online Experience,” outlined in the patent filing, would use 3D scanning to show online shoppers in-store items. The service could be used for other fresh items as well.
