GroceryRun is an online grocery store website located in Australia. The company has rapidly gained popularity and is now launching a mobile application for iPhone (News - Alert) and iPad users after a strong third quarter sales period of more the 15,000 orders per week.
The general manager for GroceryRun.com.au says,” The app’s intuitive design is intended make shopping on the go quick, easy, and secure. By replicating the in-store experience, the GroceryRun app was developed to differentiate it from other supermarket apps geared toward list making and sending the shopper in the store to make a purchase.”
Users of the app will be able to search for product availability by category or by which items are currently on sale. Users can then choose their items, add them to their online shopping cart, and go to checkout to pay their selected goods. GroceryRun has created a convenience for its 1.4 million grocery shoppers by charge a flat fee of $11 to help combat long shopping lines, hassles with find a parking space and the traffic difficulties with making the drive.
The site has given users reason to celebrate with the savings that they are receiving by using the site. Not only have shoppers saving up to 50 percent on weekly shopping, they also are getting as much as 80 percent off of conventional store prices, saving on rising gas prices by not driving to the grocery store, and the ability to utilize their time by not taking the time of driving to the store, shopping and returning home.
Whether you’re homebound, have a demanding job, have a new baby, have an injury that makes it difficult to leave the house, or are simply fed up with unending lines at the grocery store and fighting with the self-service checkout lines, this app is incredibly useful. Hopefully, a similar app will be making its way stateside in the near future.
