Although I do online shopping for other things I do not shop online for groceries since I prefer to see the expiry date etc before buying...It is the same with vegetables and fruits, in fact all day today consumer goods ,I prefer to buy myself, and I like doing it !
I shop online for a lot of stuff but never the groceries because I too, like Usha has mentioned, like to check the expiry date of most items before buying. However, I have checked out many sites that sell grocery items and feel that the local shops and markets offer a better deal in prices than online. If at all, we find groceries going really cheap, there is the issue of those things past expiry date and of old stock so they want to clear it out soon. So it is better to buy from local market where you can be assured of the quality.
I never shopped groceries online but my roomate shopped online as she has no time to go out and get them. Always busy in job. Most of the software people purchase everything online. It may look strange but shopping groceries online also prefered by many people who are much busy.
Now we are running an online grocery store in Thrissur where orders are being processed in a daily basis. You people might not believe. Our customers mostly rely on us not for branded products or cosmetics, but for grocery including vegetables, cereals, fruits and daals. More than 80% sales is on groceries though offers run for branded products as well. So nowadays we have begun to feel "People are interested to go to malls or super markets to buy branded products of their choice" and so we are keeping less inventory for such products..... Mostly personal care products.....
I am not in favor of online shopping of groceries. Online shopping of books or electricla item is OK but no online shopping of groceries. We must be remembers that live hood lacs of people of our country is depends of small retail shops.
