Online grocery shopping
Do you already shop online? Nowadays, it has become a trend. Tesco and Ocado have already launched large-scale initiatives, but more and more options will come available these day’s. Online shopping will win a lot of field in the coming years. Where we only buy 5% of the groceries online at moment, we expect that this will increase enormously in the coming years thanks to new technologies, ordering processes and delivery options. The figures announced this week are obvious. Where we spend “just” 600 million on online grocery shopping, this will be over 4.5 billion within 10 years. The fact is: shopping on the internet is very popular and increasing enormously. But what is the best online supermarket? On this page we discuss the various online supermarkets.

Where can I shop for online groceries?
England knows a large number of well-known supermarket chains. Think of ASDA, Ocado, Tesco, Waitrose, Aldi, and so we can continue for some time. But not at all supermarkets you can already order online. At some supermarkets like Lidl you can not buy anything online, at other supermarkets there is a limited online range (food v.s. non-food). Fortunately, there are more and more supermarkets where you can place a slightly larger assortment in your digital shopping cart. In particular, Morrisons has put a very mature webshop in recent years. On the online version of Iceland, you now order over 10,000 products online. It’s nice to nominate that this is not just e.g. Amazon’s assortment, but also a large part of the products of online local bakers and butchers. Did you find all the products you need? Then you can place the order directly via the internet. You then have the choice to deliver the groceries at home (the minimum order amount is £40), or pick-up the groceries at a local supermarket or pick-up point (click & collect).
Are there any “online only supermarkets” where you can buy grocery online?
Since last year, England has its first 100% online supermarket. This is Ocado. This online supermarket has no physical stores. The special Ocado app and site allows you to fill your shopping basket fast with all the products you need. Then the Ocado deliverer arrives at a fixed time. The great thing about this online supermarket is that they are always the cheapest and also provide free groceries. The image that lasts on online shopping has therefore been recalled somewhat. Making online shopping is a benefit for many people. Especially because you no longer have to go to a busy supermarket, no longer have to wait in the queue and no longer have to mess with the heavy groceries bags.
