Grocery Delivery Service is available in Houston, TX from www.LonestarShopping.com!!!
been an incredibly long time since Houston, TX had grocery delivery.
Failed supergiant Webgrocer failed Houston almost a decade ago.
The only grocery delivery that's been available is from Rice
Epicurean, a brick and mortar niche grocery store that serves
a limited region of houston with $7 grocery deliveries.
boasts an online shopping cart of over 10,000 products, with shoppers
that live near you ready to go shop at your local HEB. Or, if
you want them to go to a different store like Whole Foods you
can just type your list in from scratch and tell the shopper/driver
to go get it!!
is not a traditional warehouse style grocery delivery service,
nor is it one that is allied with a few brick and mortar grocery
stores around town. Instead LonestarShopping.com links independent
work from home shoppers with customers who need grocery delivery
service in Houston, TX.
provides a shopping cart simlator: a web portal for customers
to have the experience of shopping online. The end result however
is a textbox with a grocery list in it for for the local shopper/driver
to go and pick at a local supermarket. Aside from providing the
shopping cart simulator lonestar also provides innovative web
page to help process payments between shoppers and customers,
back end shopper software, and generalized electronic facilitation
of the online grocery shopping and delivery process. LonestarShopping
also keeps feedback reports from customers and manages the independent
grocery shoppers to some extent.
LonestarShopping staff are actually self-employed work from home
grocery shoppers, and they constitute the bulk of the company's
public interaction. These independent "Lonestar" shoppers
can each have their own rates for grocery delivery and they each
cover different regions of houston. Prices for delivery vary according
to delivery - often the minimum delivery fee is around $25 which
is less than you'd probably pay for a taxi to the grocery store.
And remember unlike ordering from Rice Epicurean there are absolutely
NO product mark ups - you pay what the local supermarkets are
charging (either HEB if you build your list using the shopping
cart, or any other store if you type your list in manually).
