To thrive in an omnichannel world, grocers and food vendors will need to rely on technical efficiencies that create more options for consumers, such as home delivery or store pick-up for pre-placed orders. The seamless consumer experience through all available shopping channels is called omnichannel retail, and it’s impacting the industry in a big way.
Why grocers and food companies need a customer-focused omnichannel strategy:
Today’s consumers expect to shop online for all types of products, including grocery goods
Consumers increasingly expect options for home delivery or store pick-up with pre-placed grocery orders
More than 50% of consumers expect to buy online and pick up in-store
Analysts project online grocery shopping will grow at 22% compounded annually, relative to 3.1% growth across the entire sector
