Where to Grocery Shop Other Than the Local Grocery Store

When people mention grocery shopping, images of your local family grocer can pop up in your head. While for some people the case is to shop local, there are also several other options to do grocery shopping, some that you might be completely surprised about.

1. Big Box Stores
Since many people are looking for less expensive alternatives for their groceries, big box stores are cashing in. Walmart and Target are adding grocery sections to more of their stores every day. Super Walmart stores already offer full grocery sections, but shoppers are finding a growing number of regular Walmart stores with larger grocery sections for the everyday shopper.

2. Delivery Services
While not less expensive, many busy families are opting into grocery delivery services to help them out while they continue their hectic schedules. Because of the success of companies like Stop & Shop with their Peapod service, more stores, like Roche Bros, are looking into their own delivery services.

3. Online Grocery Shopping
Welcome to the future of grocery shopping. While still very new and unknown, there are shoppers who are looking to online outlets like Amazon to purchase their non-perishables. Knowing in advance that you will run out of toilet paper, you can log onto your computer and purchase those items with a click of a button. With Amazon Prime, you also will not need to spend the extra cash for shipping, leading to even greater savings.
