The new age of online grocery shopping

2/24/2011 15:18:06 PM



"Buying your groceries online? What is this, 1996?" That's
what someone said to me recently when they found out I do the majority of my grocery shopping through the Internet—yes, produce and all. Sure, online grocery shopping was one of those things that people envisioned to be common in "The Future™" but many of the original efforts fizzled out during the first bursting of the dot-com bubble. Shopping for groceries and household items via the Internet is making a huge comeback, however, thanks in part to some major players who have taken it outside of the typical niche markets.

How does it work?

The answer to that question is entirely dependent upon which service you're using, and there are a few to choose from. None of the services offer the same set of features, which can be frustrating at times, but that can be a good thing when you're looking for different features to match your preferences. We rounded up some of the most prominent and often-used services to give you a brief rundown of what they do.
