Are you ordering your groceries Online?


Online shopping is more common today than ever before.

This covid- 19 pandemic had forced many of us

to shift towards a more digital world and this has changed

our shopping behavior. Our elderly used to buy groceries from

local shop and then we use to buy from big departmental stores and

then from big malls. And now after this pandemic most of you buy your

groceries online. There are some benefits and drawbacks of online shopping-

Let us first see the-

Benefits of online grocery shopping-

  • Due to growing technology-It has become very convenient & easy

to order online from your mobile app. They are open 24/7, so

that you can buy at your own time schedule.

  • Some give free home delivery. Which save your time and fuel.
  • You get big discounted deals and offers.

Now let us see the drawbacks of online grocery shopping-

  • You buy more quantity than your requirements

as you are lured with discount with bulk purchase. And

some time what happen that -the product which you had got

extra gets spoiled before used. As many times the discounted

product have near to expiry date.

  • You tend to buy more stuffs than you actually need

just because there is some (so called) good scheme.

  • Many times, this online retailer offer free shipping but

they make you to meet minimum purchase to

qualify for it. Also, they set their limited time period offers.

And, this leads you to buy extra products.

  • Online shopping makes you wait for the products

 for days or weeks and when you buy from local store

you walk with the product at same time.


Now a days, most of the local kirana stores are

also taking orders on phone & doing free home delivery.

So, Go Vocal for Local.

Even I have shifted from online grocery buying to

local grocery buying. Trying to help grow our local business.

So- you can also do the same-

Help your local neighborhood business to survive.

That’s all for today

See you next Tuesday with another Tuesday tip

Till then, take care.
