Online Grocery Shopping on the Rise

It’s no surprise to you, our customers, that people are shopping for groceries online more often. That’s what we confirmed when we polled 1,100 online grocery shoppers across the country in our first national survey. However, we were surprised to find that while the convenience of buying groceries online may save shoppers a trip to the store, most still rely on a number of brick-and-mortar stores as well as online shops to get their grocery shopping done each week. Check out more findings from our survey below and insights that Forbes and other media outlets are finding interesting.

Elizabeth Condo (L) with Daughter

I visit some pretty interesting places to meet our vendors. Just this spring, I went from the Mushroom Capital of the World to the Blueberry Capital of the World. Deep in the heart of New Jersey’s Pine Barrens, where blueberries grow in the sandy soil. More than 1 million acres of national reserve land that’s classified as a United Nations Biosphere Reserve, the Pine Barrens host 120 acres of organic blueberry bushes grown by Little Buck Organics. Back in 1997, Elizabeth Condo was working as an occupational therapist.
