17 Nov Online grocery orders are booming
Is there now also “drone delivery”?
The online grocery trade is one of the winners of the Corona crisis. In the past three months, German citizens bought almost twice as much pasta, meat, fruit and vegetables on the Internet as a year before. The effect arises a) through the increased presence of everyone at home combined with the desire b) “to treat yourself to something”, c) reduce contacts with other people and d) the massively increased familiarity with Internet orders from industries such as textiles or IT / media articles. After the German citizens gave online grocers the cold shoulder for years, they are running down their doors in times of the pandemic. At times, several retailers had to impose admission bans for new customers. In addition to the top dogs Rewe, Edeka, Aldi & Co., numerous newcomers are entering the market.
