Technology Matters-Shopping Tech

Technology Matters

    Kroger already offering a shopping cart service.  Order online, hop in the car, pick up your groceries.  Meijer and Walmart doing this.
    Now, Kroger is offering home delivery.  Order online at Kroger Ship.  This service is in limited availability.  I checked and the service is coming to Terre Haute soon.      
    Meijer in Terre Haute offering home delivery now.
    Another to-your-door service we may soon see, an Amazon van delivering to your crib.
    The online giant has ordered 20-thousand ‘sprinter’ vans.
    Amazon wants to see one-hundred small delivery businesses with thousands of vans by the end of the year.
    You’d run your own delivery business, picking up at Amazon fulfillment centers and delivering to customers’ homes.
    Tens of thousands have applied.  
    Right now the Postal Service handles almost one-half of Amazon’s ‘last-mile’ deliveries.
    Another Amazon offering, Storefronts.  
    Shop a curated collection of more than one-million products.  All from small and medium-size American-owned businesses.
    This helps smaller businesses showcase their goods and not get lost among the millions of Amazon items.
    Amazon Storefront features products for home, kitchen, pets and more.
    Each week a featured business can be viewed in a fun video.
    One more Amazon item.  Next time you’re in Chicago visit the Amazon Go store.
    Its automated, no cashiers. Scan your Amazon Go app, grab your items and walk out.
    Your registered card will be billed.  An instant receipt is sent to your phone when you exit.
