    Are you rich or something? Why not just go to stores for free instead of paying for delivery. And only rich people go to express and the butchers. Its more expensive there
    Not everyone lives within walking distance of a supermarket. *You can buy delivery passes now as well (or get free delivery if you spend enough) so it can work out cheaper to get deliveries than it is to drive and pay for parking.

    I prefer online shopping but don't do it all the time because of the minimum spends. *I go to supermarkets the odd time but go to filling stations if I just need bread or something.

    Haha not really. I do the delivery saver plan which is £6 per month, and gets me free delivery as many times as I want... Plus, if I get the bus, that's £3 return, which is more expensive than a delivery slot without the saver plan, and I have the effort of carrying everything, which if you saw my booze orders, you'd understand why that's a no go

    The butchers is expensive, hence why I only go there when it's some kind of occasion I want really good meat for. And I can honestly say I've never noticed stuff in the Express store being more expensive than the main stores. Whether it's booze, ready meals, fruit or veg, I even see the same deals in there...

    The majority of people in Britain do. I'f find it hard to do the weekly shop not using a supermarket. Where else would I get paprika or tomato purée?

    I've never bought food off the internet or anything edible for that matter. I mostly buy food from Aldi or Lidl. They are really good shops.

    I always shop in a supermarket and have never had food delivered. If I shop in a supermarket, it means I can browse easily and I might find something different I've never had before - if I shopped online that wouldn't really be possible. It also gets me out of the house for a bit.

    I have a car and plenty of spare time, so I don't feel any need to shop for groceries online.

    I like shopping be it at the supermarket or real market. Not sure why it should be daunting choosing what to eat?

    I don't do home delivery because I live on my own, so I don't tend to order enough to warrant it.

    I quite like shopping in supermarkets because I can go down the isles to find new things / inspiration for meals. I try to go at times when it's less busy (such as in the evenings). The chaos of a supermarket on Saturday mornings is awful.
