LonestarShopping.com brings grocery delivery back to Houston, TX





Released on: April 20, 2009, 2:31 am

Industry: Food & Beverage

Finally, Grocery Delivery Service is available in Houston, TX from www.LonestarShopping.com!!!

Its 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.

LonestarShopping.com 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!!

This 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.

LonestarShopping 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.

The 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).

Order online at www.LonestarShopping.com
