With numerous countries around the world still in lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic, retailers are finding innovative ways to cope and meet the upsurge in e-commerce demand. With many consumers already or on the cliff of being sheltered in place, digital grocery has become the only choice or at least a more desirable option, even in just enabling order pickup, than going into a real grocery store full of other, potentially contagious people to shop.
