What you need to know

Convenience, price drive decisions

Along with quality and trust, grocery shopping is driven by convenience followed by low prices. Convenience is sought out not only while in-store, but it is also an important factor in deciding where to shop. Factors such as location, product assortment, low prices, and faster checkouts are differentiators.

E-commerce a threat and opportunity

Online grocery shopping is one of the fastest growing segments of e-commerce in India. Convenience, discounts, and time savings are draws. Brick-and-mortar stores can take advantage of their name recognition and loyalty and compete with e-tailers by offering online ordering with pick-up or delivery to streamline the experience.

Technology is paving the future

Invest in technology (automation, voice recognition, digital payments, apps, AI, etc) regardless of whether online or offline. Robust technology will help companies improve efficiency, cut costs, and enable companies to offer speed, convenience, and better pricing – all necessary for a competitive advantage with consumers.
