With a rapid increase in the online grocery industry, it is becoming harder for eGrocery businesses to compete with one another. Independent grocery stores need to implement new features to stand out among many competitors and meet market demand.
The situation is especially challenging for independent retailers, who need to be smarter and deal with larger competition. Luckily, there are advantages of these independent grocery stores that can be smoothly transited into the online space.
A great example is when independent retailers offer SNAP coupons as a payment method. This expands payment options to those who need it most and creates a valuable business opportunity as well. Independent grocery stores, after all, have long relied on their ties to the community to drive sales; by keeping abreast of these changes in policy and the frequency of SNAP use, they’ll be better able to meet demand.
