Online Shopping Myths Busted

Local Online Shopping Myths Busted! at Your Food Collective

Imagine Doing the Grocery Shopping and Loving Every Minute of it….Impossible?

I know where I’d rather be on a Saturday morning and it isn’t under fluorescent lights, battling crowds and filling plastic bags. It’s on the beach, or in the bush, maybe even a cheeky cuppa at the café up the road.

There’s nothing more painful than thinking about struggling through the shopping. Eating into time I don’t have, deciding what to buy too many times, ending up over budget every time. Stick to the list, stick to the list… but they’re so good at making you wander down the aisles & off your list!. With 39, 000 products on the shelf they depend on it!

I decided it was time to embrace technology and yes I started doing it online…

Lean how shopping online can take the pain out of your weekly shop, giving you more time to do the things you love.

Online Shopping Myths Busted!

  1. It’s More Expensive – Online shopping has come a long way since it first hit the seen nearly 15 years ago. Today shoppers are more informed, there’s more choice than ever before and technology is more responsive that it ever has been. This means retailers have pulled up their sox. No longer are specials limited to brick and mortar stores, all of the best deals are typically available online. In fact, due to lower overheads you can usually get better deals online than in-stores.

 At Your Food Collective we’ve done just that, amazing prices direct from local producers. Our pricing is 100% transparent so you know exactly what you are paying and where your money goes. It’s fair that way.

  1. It Takes Too Long to Set Up – Often the biggest hurdle is getting started. Persevere, at least you can do it from your living room with a cool glass of Chardonnay. It beats getting lost in the aisles under fluorescent lights! Also you can typically shop at most stores without an account so there is less commitment!

At Your Food Collective we’ve made it as easy as we can for you. You can shop without an account, spend more time shopping and less time filling in your details!

  1. I don’t Have Access to the Same Range of Products – You can buy everything you need online these days, it’s also amazingly easy to search for products. It sounds like a sales pitch but really you can!

Nothing could be further from the truth at Your Food Collective. We’re the number one online provider of fresh local produce in your area. We know you need life to be easy so we’ve done our best to help you out!

  1. It’s Not Fresh – Yes, you’re at the mercy of the person packing or picking your order but most places have a fantastic returns policy, use it and they’ll soon get the message. You can also put notes on your order to let them know what your particular about this way packers can pick exactly what you want.

At Your Food Collective your food is picked for your order. Nothing has been sitting around or travelled half the globe to reach you. It is actually paddock to plate! You’ll taste the difference!

  1. I Don’t Know What I Want – Believe it or not most people buy the same thing week in and week out. It’s the same ten or so meals on rotation, it’s simply a matter of owning up to it. It pays to spend a bit of time thinking about what you typically eat and then before you know it you can have your weekly order set up and purchased at the click of a button. Imagine coming home from holidays to find your weekly shop sitting there on the doorstep ready to go.

At Your Food Collective we’ve laid it out really clearly for you. Check out our Blog and social media sites for all the seasonal cooking inspiration you’ll need. We’ll also help you design a “Set and Forget” order, we want to make it as easy as we can for you to enjoy amazingly fresh local produce every night of the week!

Local Running at Your Food Collective
Newcastle’s New Trails – something for everyone even if its just brekky afterwards

For me it’s trails and it’s been that way for a long time. It’s the place where I can completely switch off. That feeling of freedom as you pass through the trees or skip across creeks, there’s nothing quite like it for pushing re-set.
