Kroger is announcing a new program to make deliveries with drones.

Smith's parent company is teaming up with Drone Express for a pilot program starting this spring in the midwest.

The drones can only carry up to 5 pounds so Kroger is going to start out with bundled product offerings.

For example, shoppers can choose a baby care bundle that includes wipes and formula.

The drones can deliver to customers wherever they are at any time by tracking smartphone locations.
