Grocery Delivery and Pickup in 2019

How Far We’ve Come, and How Far We’re About to Go

According to one recent study conducted by Statista, online grocery shopping sales are expected to reach $22 billion in total by the end of the year. By as soon as 2021, that number will climb to an enormous $30 billion – underlining one of the most important trends in grocery sales to come along in a generation.

Another recent study revealed that while most Americans have yet to actually use online grocery ordering or curbside solutions, that number is decreasing dramatically every day. This means that for the first time in years, the playing field is finally level between massive international corporations like Amazon and Whole Foods and smaller and more intimate organizations like yours. That study also revealed that pricing and delivery cost, convenience, user experience and ease of ordering are all things that people are going to be focusing on when selecting a provider in the not-too-distant future.

Those qualities are therefore going to become your way to cement a significant competitive advantage over larger organizations well into the next decade and at Glympse, that’s exactly what we want to help you do.
