Lady in Grocery Store

The corporations’ efforts to expand online grocery shopping could inadvertently cripple smaller grocery stores and markets, potentially raise grocery store insurance rates, and stunt the growth of “farm-to-table” movement that encourages people to eat locally grown and produced food.

Consumers are increasingly buying everything online. However, buying groceries, especially fresh produce, online hasn’t really caught on, until recently and could have a huge effect on grocery store insurance and the industry as a whole.

The public reaction to the online grocery movement tends to be mixed. While wealthier and younger Americans tend to favor a trend toward moving everything online, the elderly and those who want to support local produce are vehemently against the movement toward online grocery shopping.
