What about refrigerated and frozen items ? Those would be required to be stored appropriately. I do not think Walmart or any reputable chain would allow this, as it would be a violation. It might be good for non refrigerated goods yeah, but meats and other stuff that should go right away in the refrigerator or freezer, that would be a big no-no. So the best solution ? Build a contraption - you know where you put your refrigerator, you build a closed tunnel behind it that leads all the way to a trap door outside the house, inside this tunnel would be a motor driven cart or conveyor belt, so the worker would always stay outside, and just have to drop items one by one inside the conveyor belt inside a trap door, and items would automatically be placed in the refrigerator, freezer, or left outside, the system could use electronics - and workers would be sticker tags, red circle means item can stay outside, blue circle means item must be put in freezer and green circle means item must go in refrigerator - so at the end of this conveyor belt, items would be scanned and sorted immediately, the worker outside would get a feedback, if system is confused and does not know, the item would be sent back to the worker outside so they can re-tag it. Of course it would just be practical if they can use teleportation devices and beam your groceries inside appropriate places, but that's not ready yet, it's still in prototype, and might be ready by something like 100 years from now who knows, but good news, Tasman1 will still be alive to experience this and maybe the lot of us, as reincarnates
