Retailers from Walmart to Kroger now offer grocery delivery, angling to compete with Amazon since it acquired Whole Foods in 2017.
But it doesn't mean consumers are rushing to order groceries online.
According to a new Bain & Co. survey completed in collaboration with Google, just 3% of grocery spending in the U.S. takes place online, compared to much higher levels of e-commerce penetration in areas such as footwear (20%) and consumer electronics (40%). Only 25% of those surveyed tried an online grocery service in the last year and just 6% have consistently ordered groceries online monthly.
Part of the problem is shoppers' perception. Some are concerned about being able to determine the best prices when shopping online, while others complain about items being out of stock or delivery drivers being late.
But perhaps the biggest problem of all? Grocery delivery is intended to save time for the consumer, yet only 42% of those surveyed said the service saved them time.
With converting shoppers' habits already so difficult, the type of experience a consumer has can be the difference between a repeat customer and someone who swears off grocery delivery, according to Bain.
Despite these challenges, Bain expects that groceries will be part of e-commerce growth, which in total is expected to at least triple in the next decade. In order to be part of this boom, online grocery retailers will need to become even more convenient and incorporate features such as shopping lists and price comparison to convert consumers.

Piqued Jacks rock n roll #Flyah

Piqued Jacks describe their sound in their own words: “being able to speak without impediment; having sex in the most intense way possible; expressing ourselves 100%”. You have to hear it to experience it for yourself. Piqued Jacks are brave souls. Rising from a small village in Italy, they have methodically made their way from obscurity to Austin, the heart of the indie music scene, performing 2 showcases at SXSW 2013. Their powerful alliance and headstrong vision has resulted in rapid success and the positive flow of their career indicates a confident band gaining serious momentum. Back in 2006, the Piqued Jacks were anything but serious. They causally acquired the band name after someone drops a bass during rehearsal. The damaged jack resembled an erect penis and the boys felt the sexual allusion suited their sound. A few years later, something clicked, a unified connection to the music making process, and from 2010 to 2011 they released two EP’s, conquering Italian airw…
