Groceries Online Catching On In NYC

from the seems-popular dept

The online grocery market has certainly gone through its share of ups and downs. However, over the past few years there have been a bunch of stories about a next generation of online grocery stores that seem to be getting more traction. One of the more famous is FreshDirect in New York City — where online grocery shopping makes a lot more sense. Apparently, residents there agree, as a new study shows that more than half of NYC residents have tried online groceries — though, that doesn’t mean they all have been happy with it. Still, it does suggest that there’s demand for such a service in some places (especially urban), if it’s done right.

Making the city more livable

NYC is full of small, dirty stores offering limited merchandise — one has to build a formidable database of where to buy various items, not to mention the time wasted going to different stores. This will make the city more livable — though I still wouldn’t want to live there.
