An efficient supply chain — complete with strategically-placed micro-fulfilment centers — helps grocery retailers keep up with eCommerce demand.
As the prevalence and convenience of eCommerce continues to grow, almost no market or industry remains untouched. New patterns of purchasing present exciting opportunities for retailers, including grocery stores who can capture new customers through online orders. In fact, research shows that 37 percent of shoppers have bought groceries online in the past year, compared to 23 percent the year prior. That’s an estimated increase of 35 million customers who are now shopping for groceries online.
