November last last year I took the plunge and did my first online grocery shop. I did a click and collect with a pick up straight to the boot of my car. No bags thanks.
So on the way home from work I had my first ‘shop to boot’ pick up experience. I’m happy.
I don’t do this all the time, once or twice per month there are some things I like to pick out myself. I get basic vegetables included but not things I’m very picky about and I usually do 2 fruit and vegetable buys during the week. I also state no substitutes, I’ve heard of some weird stuff being substituted.
I enter my payment method each time as I have a thing about my bank details.
I’m very happy and wondered why I’d not tried it sooner I guess it’s that fear of something new.
Today between us my Mum now has been set up with online grocery shopping click and collect at her local store. A big step for my mum and it will be so much easier for her to be able to go out and pop into the other stores then just drive her car to the back to get her groceries, have it loaded before going home and have her. All done in half the time. Yes it could be delivered but if you have to go out anyway why not get some one else to do the boring stuff.
I’m not one for new years resolutions but maybe it’s just time to do something new and keep it going into the year.
Who does their grocery shopping online? Delivery or pick up?
