I mostly get my groceries delivered or ask a person to shop for me in an emergency, but the whole shopping experience of supermarkets can be quite daunting

Never been one to buy groceries online.

Prefer going to the supermarket, butchers, fishmongers and fruit+vegetable sellers directly.

I'm quite particular on my fish, meats, fruits and vegetables, therefore I must see it first before committing to buy.

My mum is a single mum and given that she works full time, doesn't have time to go traipsing down to the supermarket so we get most of the groceries for the week delivered.

I'll usually get stuff delivered, and then stop off at the Tesco Express in the evening if I need anything last minute... If I'm cooking a nice meal or something, I might go to the Butcher to get my meat, otherwise, I usually just let the pickers pick me me food!

I love going food shopping. I find it quite relaxing

I do get my groceries delivered too sometimes, maybe once or twice a month

Yeah, I go to the supermarket. It's not that daunting once you get in the habit.

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

I'm not lazy, of course I shop for myself. Usually on my way home from university or early in the mornings on weekends.

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.
