online grocery shopping work?
much like shopping at a grocery store. You browse categories and
select items to add to your online basket. You then choose a delivery
window (typically a two- or three-hour period on a specific day).
The first time you order from a site is usually the most time-consuming
as you must search for each item. But generally you can then revisit
your past lists on subsequent visits and your shopping time will
drop to just minutes. Many services also allow you to have standing
orders that are delivered at the same time each week or month.
meat and produce?
services that offer these items, you must trust the personal shopper
to make selections for you. But if the produce or meat isn't fresh,
grocers will credit you. Typically this is not a problem.
I determine if a service delivers to my address?
site is organized by state so you can narrow down your search.
Grocers tend to concentrate on heavily populated areas, so if
you live in a rural address you may have trouble finding home
delivery. Most grocery sites allow you to enter your zip code
to find out if you can receive deliveries.
What is the difference between home and UPS delivery?
Home delivery means that your order will be delivered to your door within a two- or three-hour period that you select. UPS delivery means that the grocer will pack and mail your order (non-perishable items only). These orders usually arrive within a week.
bought online more expensive than those in the store?
depends. In our experience, the prices at larger delivery services
such as Peapod are about the same, although some items may be
more and some less.
are delivery charges?
should expect to pay anywhere from $5 to $15 per delivery.
Why don't more people shop for groceries online?
Beats us. Once you have placed your weekly grocery order online in 10 minutes and then had someone carry the bags into your home and place them on the counter, there's no going back. Some people claim they find the routine of visiting the grocery store to be relaxing, but we can think of lots of others things to do to relax.
