    Interesting that D'ag is over Wholefoods... but only in Median.

    The snobs generally flock to WF over any other.....

    It would be interesting to see the average $ spent, although that would be difficult given that there are many more "pick up" stops at a NYC grocery than in the 'burbs (weekly grocery being the norm).... Normalizing the expense against the actual items ordered.....

    It would probably be easier to average online deliveries from brick and mortar groceries. I think people tend to do more big weekly shopping that way.

    It is less common the more suburban, and older, you get.

    It is a very difficult set of data to get a good baseline on, but if done right you certainly have enough data to play with....

    My family tried it WAY back when when it was weekly, and we tried it a few years ago...

    It is just easier to stroll up and down the aisle to browse and see what is on sale and be reminded of things than it is to remember everything you need....

    If you are more of a planner and have your weekly list made out already, an extra $5 delivery is definitely worth it!
