The Shoppers Dream - Online Grocery Shopping!

Sep 13, 2008
Online shopping is a rapidly growing trend for a number of reasons that we look at below. Online grocery shopping, including for the organic variety, is especially gaining in popularity.

With modern advancements in technology, you can fill your grocery cart and checkout without ever leaving home. While some local supermarkets allow you to shop online and then pick up your purchase at the store, there are many that will deliver your groceries right to your front door!

The Benefits of Buying Your Groceries Online -
Shopping online has many benefits. The ability to shop via the internet for groceries is a lifesaver for those without transportation, many elderly people, disabled people, and can be quite a convenience for everyone else.

Saves Time and Reduces Stress -
Grocery shopping can take a great deal of time out of your schedule. When you shop online, you eliminate your driving time as well as the time it takes to walk through the store, fill your cart, and load your bags into your car.

Saves Money -
Shopping from home not only saves on gas, you are much more likely to stick to your list. The lessening of temptation to impulse buy will save several dollars/pounds at the checkout.

Offers Flexibility -
Your local grocer business hours may not always suit your schedule. Online grocery shopping is available any time of day or night and you can even shop while you are watching television (during the commercial break that is), cooking dinner, or during your lunch break at the office.

Where to Shop Online for Groceries -
A number of supermarkets now offer online shopping as well as delivery. There are also a variety of specialty online grocers that deliver to a larger area; many will deliver nationwide.

For organic food aficionados there are a wide variety of organic food stores that offer shopping and delivery over the internet as well. Shopping online for organic food ensures convenience and savings while improving the health and well-being of you and your family, and of course that of the environment.

UK residents can find a tremendous selection of online grocers and organic food suppliers by visiting the Buy Organic Food link below and clicking on the Organic Food Suppliers button there. Here are some examples -

Rare and Organic offers fine wines, organic cheeses, pasta, and other foods for delivery throughout the UK.

The Organic Pantry provides a personal grocery delivery service to Yorkshire residents with fresh vegetable boxes tailored to each individual costumer.

The Ethical Superstore has one of the widest range of organic foods on the Internet (see Ethical Superstore link below) as well as other non-food goods.

There are just as many online food retailers throughout the rest of the world. Those living in the United States can shop at Applegate Farms for natural and organic meats. From frozen organic chicken strips to an array of cheeses and deli meats, you can find everything you need for healthy, balanced meals directly on your computer.

The next time you make out your grocery list, consider the convenience of the internet before you load up the car for a trip to the store. Save both time and money without ever leaving home with online grocery shopping.
