This is not the only solution.

As you get started with things like fresh produce and freshly made items, you are a little more hesitant to buy them online.
Doucette says shoppers also like to pick their produce in person, so they can smell or squeeze it.
He adds that there may also be damage during the delivery process. For example, Doucette says he experimented with a two-liter soda bottle placed in the same bag as a loaf of bread.
The survey also asked how their overall shopping habits might change as the pandemic ends: “One of the great things people have said is that they will always stay away from others in stores. 63 percent of people agreed with this.
Doucette says arrows have also been removed from the floors of some grocery stores, indicating that the precautions are being lifted.
He says: “There is no doubt that the adoption of online grocery shopping has been accelerated by the pandemic and retailers have also stepped up their new offerings. We are traditionally far behind the United States in this space, but we are closing the gap quickly. While it may not be the drones and automated robots delivering items to our doorstep, the future looks very bright for online grocery shopping.
