Mobile Shopping | #BizTrends with Dion Chang



Over the years, busy lifestyles have led to the development of new ways to shop for essentials.  In South Africa, Pick ‘n Pay and Woolworths both offer online shopping. In the United States, drive-through convenience stores are almost as common as drive-through takeaways.  And Amazon styled stores have taken over the world.

The Koreans already have a virtual grocery store, operated by Tesco Homeplus.  Commuters are able to shop and pay with their phone while waiting for the train.  Orders are packaged and delivered after commuters return home in the evening (certainly a step up from South African online grocery delivery).

The difference between picking up your vegetables and meats on the subway, and ordering them online for home delivery is that commuters can actually make use of time spent in transit.  That’s a big difference from taking time away from work to check your grocery list – or to leave early to receive your delivery.
