Hi, Just wanted to get your opinion on grocery deliveries to your door step..

Postby yrtrnc » Wed Apr 25, 2012 3:43 pm

In the processes of starting up grocery delivery services and just wanted to get your ideas on what products you would like to see offered?
Would you use such a service? And if you have any ideas on how it could be, such as pricing etc.?

Thanks in advance :)

I honestly think that if you were to set up a delivery service then you would have to be prepared to delivery anything that you sold in your store. To be honest I wouldn't want to think that you would deliver some items, but I would still have to go out and buy others that weren't available for delivery. I wouldn't want any meat, fish, dairy products or frozen delivered because of the length of time in your van, unless of course you had a refridgerated compartment. Wish you luck though.

Hi

And thank you for your comments! We would invest in a van with a freezer compartment for delivery of frozen goods :)

And we would try to stock a variety of products just like a major supermarket! So pretty much all would be available and more.

Hi Yrtrnc. I think grocery delivery is a great idea. It would be really handy for those of us with holiday homes here so that we could book a grocery delivery for the day we arrive, rather than feeling like the first thing we have to do is a trip to the supermarket! - I'd be happy with standard essentials like tea, coffee, milk, sugar, bread, juice, biscuits, toilet paper, sun cream etc. Good luck!

I agree with kandaharkenny, perhaps

I agree with kandaharkenny, perhaps it might be better if you were to direct yourselves to people visiting their holiday homes, and concentrate on the essentials, with a few add ons. I still think that if we live here on a permanent basis, then our "shopping list" might be much more than you could could cope with, unless of course you have all the stock that say Lemar have, and I doubt you would be able to do that. Best of luck though.

You wont want to hear

You wont want to hear this i guess. I dont see your service being viable because:
a) the market will be a niche one, i.e. small
b) competition from nearby supermarkets will mean you will need to deliver a large range of goods to compete.
c) your future customers will be unwilling to pay any more than a small premium for the convenience.
d) to provide an efficient service will require investment in a refrigerated van/driver etc.

In direct answer to your question, i would not use your service because i have plenty of time to incorporate shopping into my daily routine. I suspect this will apply to most of your potential market.

Good luck ( I suspect you will need it).

Hi guys

Thanks for your info,

We will have a large inventory of goods to deliver, even more than Lemar. And our prices will be competitive compare to big markets eventually.

Thanks
