This Thursday, Jan. 5, 2017, photo shows corporate signage at a Walmart in Kissimmee, Fla. Walmart is testing a service that lets a delivery person walk into a customer's home when they're not there to drop off packages or put groceries in the fridge. The retailer says the service is for busy families who don't have time to stop at a store.

Wal-Mart Stores Inc.'s latest convenience-oriented test will give delivery workers access to customers' homes to drop off packages and put groceries in their refrigerators.
