The writers at New You discussed their opinions on online shopping. Get the scoop on who likes to shop in their pjs.
Ana: “It depends on what I am buying. If it is boxed or canned food like corn and pasta, I’ll buy them. If it is dairy or fresh produce, like tomatoes, avocados, etc. I wouldn’t because I like to pick those myself.”
Tiffany: “I like the idea of shopping for groceries online. I would trust someone else to do it once I guided them through the process beforehand and told them what I like and dislike. However, I’d mainly do it when I’m too busy to go to the store myself, or if it’s a rainy day (something like that). Other than that, I generally enjoy going so I can see the products for myself.“
Sydney: “I’d prefer to online shop and have it delivered because I hate grocery shopping. The lines are too long, and the other shoppers annoy me. I like to get in and out of the supermarket, and others make it difficult for me to do just that. I’d be sure to make a note of what I want exactly, and if they (delivery guy) fail to pick the produce properly, I’ll have them take it back. I’m a very picky eater – it’s kind of an oxymoron because I eat basic foods – so they wouldn’t have any problems finding the foods I like.”
Ruchel: “I would definitely use the online store for dry goods and detergents. Produce is a little different here. Instead, I would like to see more farmers markets so that they are like Walgreens (around every corner).”
Lauren: “Yeah, online grocery shopping would be nice. It would be good because I sometimes hate going grocery shopping and because you can stick to a certain list and budget. Your eyes wouldn’t wander into the snack aisle or the ice cream section. So if you set out to only get healthy food, you would only be delivered healthy food. (I sometimes come home with bags of Cheetos that I didn’t set out to buy originally).”
Alexus: “I would give online grocery shopping a trial run. I think it would be convenient. I would still want to pick out my own meat, though.”
Happy online shopping!
