hi.

i have query , could you please help me.

actually i was thinking about a grocery delivery business, which can be done online like the ebay site, but the delivery time will be quick, like u orderd your grocery on saturday and it will be at your home on sunday. we can run this business online. just imagine what will be better than enjoying your weekend without any headache of going to grocery stores buying stuff and ruining your weekend , i saw a lot of potential in this idea , what do you think . reply me soon,

thank you

Hi Lovejot,

I think it is a great idea! But would advice you to do research on it, there was a famous failure back in the .com era of a similar biz idea. The company was called Webvan and was started by the founder of Borders books. This company did not make it, although I think it may have been an idea that was before its time. I just did a google search and it looks like Amazon.com is also getting into the grocery delivery business they are doing it now in Germany and looks like they are going to start doing grocery deliveries in Seattle as well.

I think its a great idea to find a specific niche to specialize in. another angle on this idea that pops in my mind is catering to business executives who may be very, very busy and would love to not have to go to the grocery store, another market may be older retired folks who find it difficult to get to the store. You could also broaden the idea to other areas if you are going to get groceries for people why not pick up their dry cleaning, pet care supplies from the petstore, and meds from the pharmacy as well, you could even pick up a pizza and delivery it to them as well! When I think about it there are all sorts of things people would pay somebody else to pickup for them, this is now turning into the idea of an errand service. which also has many side streams of income. ie dog walking, house sitting, pickup mail/newspapers while people are on vacation etc.

Lots of good ideas to look into!

Let us know how it goes.
