What if you never had to go to the grocery store again? Now we all know that you can order books, electronics, and almost
everything else on the internet, but groceries! That’s right some companies are actually starting to sell groceries online. Companies like Netgrocer are allowing you to purchase even perishable items and have them shipped to your door step. It will probably not surprise you too much to know that Amazon and Walmart are also getting into the online grocery shopping business. However, they both are very limited on what type of groceries you can purchase. Generally they do not allow you to purchase perishable items
such as cold cuts, milk, etc. Though, this will most likely change in the near future once online grocery shopping begins to become more widely accepted.
I personally am very excited about having online grocery shopping as an option as it could save me a significant amount of time. I
cannot tell you how much time out of my life is spent at Walmart, but I guarantee you it is a lot. If you added up the total amount of time the average person spends at Walmart in a lifetime I actually bet it would be years. Simply being able to sit down in my house and order all my groceries would save me so much time. There is only one major problem with this concept. I live in a rural area and most of the people around me do not have access to high speed internet. There is no way you could save much time trying to browse through a bunch of groceries on dial up. I think it would actually be a lot quicker just to drive to the store and back. For this model to work you almost have to have high speed internet service. There is actually one solution to this problem, satellite internet. Internet via satellite can usually provide even the most rural areas with high speed internet service.
