- Walmart is rolling out giant vending machines for online pickup orders
By Patrick Kulp - Thursday Jul 6, 2017

Unlike classic bodegas and mom-and-pop corner stores, these machine box things will not make you an egg and cheese on a roll, and they will certainly not recognize you and talk with you about whatever the hell you talk about at 2 a.m. on a weekday when you've wandered in cuz you can't sleep and now you're hungry.
