    Good news if you prefer using Apple Pay instead of cash or credit cards.

    Apple Pay becoming available at 74 of the top 100 retail locations.

    This includes Target, Taco Bell and the convenient stores of Speedway.  Pay using your iPhone or Apple Watch.

    Thousands of Taco Bell stores will start accepting Apple Pay, some already.

    Apple says nearly two-thirds of all retail locations support Apple Pay.

    Nearly 130-million of you using Apple Pay.

    Kroger with a new way to pay.  Its rolling out Kroger Pay.

    Its available in the app and combines payment and loyalty card info to cut time in the checkout line.

    The app also stores and transmits digital coupons and personalized offers in a single swipe.

    Look for it in Terre Haute Kroger stores later this year.

    You’ve seen those parking spots at the supermarket for people who bought their groceries online.  There’s a reason those parking spots are usually empty.

    A consulting firm found just three percent of us buy food online.

    Electronics?  Forty percent of us.

    We trail the U-k and South Korea in online grocery shopping.

    The problem is less than one-half say it saves time.  Another issue, online doesn’t replicate the in-store experience.

    You know where to find the discounts and specials in the store, but its tough to find them online.

    Still, online grocery shopping is expected to triple over the next decade.
