What happens when you’ve got an empty fridge and can’t seem to find the time to go grocery shopping? Regardless of whether you’re busy with your kids or a job (or even both), you need food in your home to sustain yourself and power through that busy schedule.
Two Superstores in Winnipeg are now offering people a way to cut down time spent buying groceries. Now, it could take just seconds to grab your groceries (and no, a teleportation device hasn’t yet been perfected) through a service called “Click and Collect.”
All customers have to do is order their groceries online and select a time when they’re free to pick them up. Then, the customer drives to the front of the store and waits while an employee loads the order into the car. And that’s it. The customer drives into the sunset, happily-ever-after, stress-free, with a car full of fresh food.
But wait, it only gets better from there. You can make sure you’re getting the high-quality products you know you deserve when using Click and Collect. There’s actually an option to manually select the expiry date of the product you purchase. If worst comes to worst and you’re afraid that you might get bad produce from ordering online, you have the option of sifting through the groceries before going home. Seems almost too good to be true, right?
Although an extra $3 to $5 CAD may be added onto the bill for those who use the service, you’ll save plenty of time and energy. Winnipeg just gave us a classic case of shopping done right.
