We’ve all been trying to minimise outings lately; you might have even considered doing your grocery shopping online. But is shopping online really better than the real thing? If you can’t physically feel and smell the produce, how can you really know what you’re buying? Well, if you’ve never done it before, here are a few of the many benefits of buying your groceries online.
Minimal handling of your products
If you can’t touch, prod, poke, and squeeze the avocados, guess what? Neither can anyone else! Remember, avocados ordinarily get harassed hundreds of times before they end up in somebody’s basket. But not when you’re shopping online. No one but the farmers, buyers, and the people packing your order will touch your food before it gets to you.
Less storage time
At Jim’s Home Fresh, your fresh fruit and veg doesn’t sit in storage for months, or even weeks. Within a 48-hour turnaround time from the market to your box, your orders are packed and delivered. This means fruit and veg will last longer when it gets to you!
When you’re weaving in and out of supermarket aisles, it’s easy to be tempted by items not on your list. Especially if you’re hungry. By shopping online, you’ll be less likely to impulse buy. And, if you’re hungry, you can even place your order while you’re eating!
When you shop online at Jim’s Home Fresh, you’ll always be at the front of the queue. You can check out as soon as you’re ready. You don’t have to worry about losing your place if you suddenly need to go back for a forgotten item!
No contact with others
Many of us have always preferred to avoid crowded places, and there’s never been a more important time to keep your distance than now. With online shopping, you don’t have to come into contact with a single person. You can do your weekly shop from the comfort of your bed, if you really want to.
See the total before you pay
Sticking to a budget? Always mentally calculating your shopping total as you do the rounds of each aisle? When you do your food shop online, you’ll be able to see the total well before you check out.
Never again will you have to suffer the shock (and embarrassment) of an exorbitant shopping trip you hadn’t bargained for... When there’s a queue of impatient customers waiting behind you... And, it’s too late to take something back... And, the cashier is silently judging you. (No one is silently judging your 10 packets of chips and chocolate online, no one.)
Relax and expect your delivery
No more having to worry about taking bags, navigating a trolley with a dead wheel (a fine art), forgetting your shopping list, or carrying heavy items. Once you’ve placed your order online, you can sit back and relax until your box appears on your doorstep.
