An Online Mobile Grocery Race




So when do you think companies like Wal-mart and Meijer going to offer an online grocery store? I think this could be huge for whomever comes out with it, and markets it correctly. There are many elderly people, or others that just don't have enough time in their days to go grocery shopping. The store could team up with a Fed-Ex, UPS, or even the newcomer DHL to do the deliveries. They could start out by have a certain radius in which it could delivery from the store. Of course, this would make the goods more expensive, but I have a good feeling people are willing to pay a premium for this service. Just think you would never forget to get something, because you would make up this list all online. The companies would have to rev-up their websites, but I don't think they are too far from it. I mean, if you think about it, you can order items from Meijer and Wal-mart all ready online, but for some reason groceries are not yet an option. I suppose that the orders would need to be processed quicker than they are now, but with the way technology is charging ahead, I am surprised that no one has taken advantage of this potinetial market. Imagine how much business is being lost just due to the fact that people can not physically get out of their house or just don't want to go to the grocery store. In today's day and age people simply want convinence. Meijer and Wal-mart better step up soon or someone like me might just take this idea and run with it! Or maybe you? What is your prediction. Comment below on which company you think will win the online grocery race. Maybe the established Swan's, which all ready has the refrigderated trucks to do the deliveries.

Actually, I think some friends of mine told me that these grocery services are now avaialble in places like San Francisco, Seattle and New York City. It seems to make sense, and I'm sure people would use it. Heck, I just ordered a pizza from Papa John's not too long agao online. Wacky stuff...

The idea of an online store is good for me. I have to agree with you that it is really beneficial for our old folks who can't do shopping anymore. And we just have to expect that goods will be more expensive, they just have to make sure that the service to be received by people will be on premium state.
