This headline, currently making its rounds on the internet, attests to what most of us already suspect: Digital grocery-shopping will boom in the next few years.
Although online grocery-shoppers remain in the minority, the future of grocery retail is looking more and more “digital.” Store pickup and local delivery, in particular, have the potential to change grocery shopping as we know it.
And such drastic changes are calling into question even our most basic understandings of how shoppers shop. How, many of us are asking, is grocery shopping in an online environment different from shopping in-store?
