Take the strain out of your weekly shop!

Most of us hate going to the supermarket.  People are simply too busy these days; you fight for a parking space, there are long queues, you play dodgems in the aisles with your trolley and there are children running wild! Not to mention that supermarkets are full of spirit crushing offers, and deceptive pricing. Thankfully there is a new local delivery service that represents the future of shopping as we know it – We Deliver Local. You can have local groceries brought to you instead of fighting against the hassle of travelling to your local superstore. Not only saving you money, but time, stress, and hassle.

 

Here’s how to get started with We Deliver Local…

 

Firstly, go to the site www.wedeliverlocal.co.uk, and enter your postcode. We Deliver Local covers over 100 areas of the UK, and soon will cover even more!   It is currently the UK largest independent online grocery market, offering everything from veg boxes to corner shops; and offers grocery delivery so you don’t have to rely on major supermarket chains. Simply pick the store you like and place your order.

 

You’ll need to sign up for an account.  Shop for your groceries, add items to your cart, and check out with your preferred credit or debit card, PayPal or even Bitcoin.  It’s just like when you buy a DVD at Amazon, music at iTunes, or Ebay.

 

When you check out, the first thing you’ll notice is the delivery charge.  It’s usually something like £2 or another specific fee based on the size of your order, or distance from the shop.  Think of it as the equivalent to a shipping fee, and many or our grocery stores will waive the delivery fee entirely if you order over a certain value.  Finally simply select a delivery window and sit back and relax.

 

At We Deliver Local online prices are usually the same as with in-store pricing.  Also, you can see the total cost with every single item you add to your cart so its easy to stay within your budget.

 

Shopping for your groceries on the internet is easy and cheap.  You may still want to top up your shop at the supermarket with certain items, but it should really take the strain out of your weekly shop.

Have you considered changing your shopping habits?

 

There are lots of new online services that shop locally on your behalf and then deliver to your home.  These types of services are becoming more and more popular.

 

Instinctively most people would like to support their local independent retailers.  However, in modern times, a lack of free time, work demands, and pressures of the modern family, we find ourselves habitually reaching for the convenience of supermarket shopping.

 

It’s well documented and noticeable fact that our local butchers, green grocers and corner shops have been slowly disappearing from high streets around the UK.  Many are having a tough time keeping up with our national supermarket giants whose late opening hours, dominance of our towns, and accessible out of town parking are just too easy and well adapted for the our 21st century lifestyles.

 

It may be news to you, however, that it’s now possible to buy your groceries online from shops in your area in the same way you would from Sainsbury’s or Tesco. We are seeing neoteric online businesses springing up across the country.  You can order online, collect locally, and some shops will even deliver them to you.

 

The cost of buying locally can be surprisingly low.  A typical veg box, grown locally has far fewer overheads than what you’d find on the supermarket shelves.  Your local convenience store will always be on the lookout for great special offers from the local cash and carry too.   This is how they sustain themselves, and keep customers coming back.  Once you start shopping locally it’s hard to stop.  People are attracted by the quality of service, and by the fact that shopping local really is the right thing to do.  I’ve often asked our local shop owner to stock certain items.  He is always happy to oblige.  This is the kind of service that the big supermarkets can never achieve.

 

It may also interest you to know that for every £1 spent locally, more than twice as much is retained in the local economy; not only supporting other local businesses, but also communities such as schools and other local services.

 

Have you considered changing your shopping habits?   We Deliver Local is an online grocery delivery service that operates around the UK.  Customers visit the website, and can easily place an order with shops in their area. The website boasts a wide variety of butchers, bakers, fishmongers, greengrocers and farm shops. In some areas you can order from multiple retailers and have you order delivered in one easy delivery. It’s also reassuring to know that the cost is the same as if you’d bought from the shop in person.

What’s in Your Basket?

 

Online shopping or online retailing has grown in popularity over the years and is a form of electronic commerce which allows you to directly buy goods or services from a shop over the Internet using a web browser. Online shopping has been happening for a while – so how does it work, and are there any problems you should be aware of?

 

Basically shopping online includes adding things to a virtual basket, viewing and editing your purchases, visiting the online checkout and arranging delivery.

 

With We Deliver Local, you are buying your goods directly from your local shops over the internet.  You may have had similar experiences with eBay, or Just-Eat.  Essentially, when you buy a product from We Deliver Local, instead of going to a traditional brick-and-mortar store, you can make your purchase via the website instead.  This means you can shop securely, and locally from the comfort of your own home.

 

There are many deals across the website, and you can be sure that all the prices are the same as in store.  You are dealing directly with your local shop or supplier so you can be confident that you are getting quality and the best service possible. If you encounter any problems with your order, you can easily deal directly with the shop owner, getting the same customer service as you would from any local shop.

 

We Deliver Local was set up to connect people with their local shop owners; whether this be a butcher’s, fish monger, convenience store or many more of the varied shops on the website. We strive to work with only the best shop owners and producers so you can be confident that you really are getting the best local shopping online experience.

 

We hope you enjoy the website and will pay us a visit soon at www.wedeliverlocal.co.uk. We are always happy to receive feedback about the site.  If you have any suggestions please email [email protected]

Why Shop Locally and Independently?

 

A sustainable food system requires robust networks of local and regional food production and distribution. 

 

If you’re even contemplating the idea of buying local food, then you’re a long way ahead of most consumers. Many of the benefits should already be apparent as to why buying local food is so important. However if your still not fully convinced then perhaps it’s worthwhile to read on!

 

Local food is quite a buzz phrase nowadays. There are good reasons behind the popularity of this movement. For example, buying from local farmers promotes the local economy, supports your friends and neighbours and reduces our use of fossil fuels. On average supermarket food has travelled up to 1,500 miles to get to your dinner table.  It’s probably also important to consider that supermarkets tend to buy varieties of fruit and vegetables that travel well, don’t bruise easily, last a long time, and keep ‘looking good’.  However the fruit and vegetables which have been transported huge distances have fewer nutrients, are more costly to the environment, and take money out of your local economy.

 

You can easily contribute to ensuring that you are helping to generate income for your local economy, and put money in the pockets of your local businesses. Take Action. Sustainability is about ensuring the long-term well-being of not only the planet, but people and the economy. A commitment to buying locally grown foods is a powerful gesture to the larger community.  It, as well as buying from your corner shop or local grocery store, reflects dedication to supporting small and endangered family businesses,

 

We Deliver Local (www.wedeliverlocal.co.uk) is an online grocery market, specifically restricted to local and independent business.  You can be sure if you shop online with us, that your money is going straight back in the pocket of your local businesses.

A Mediterranean Diet Reduces Caner Risk

 

Eating a healthy, balanced diet can reduce your risk of cancer.

Experts think that nearly one in ten UK cancer cases are caused by living an unhealthy life style, lack of regular exercise, and making bad food choices. It is important to include everything you need in your diet, even in good health.  It has been discovered that proper nutrition and diet are important to help prevent many digestive diseases, including colorectal, esophageal, and liver cancers.

Choosing healthy food is not the only important factor. It also matters how you prepare and store your food and of course stopping smoking and drinking less alcohol.

www.cancer.gov states that eating more fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains and protein, and sticking to very few fatty, fried or sugary foods, can really be of benefit.   They conclude that 60% of all cancers of the oesophagus, 45% of all colo-rectal cancers and 38% of breast cancers could be prevented, if people ate a healthy diet, had a healthy body weight and engaged in regular physical activity.

A lot of people think that eating a healthy diet and a cancer protective diet means cutting all sorts of favourite foods out of your diet and that actually isn’t so. Typically the Mediterranean diet is a very natural, organic way of eating. But you don’t have to live near the Mediterranean to enjoy this style of food, nothing is really excluded, generally. It involves a eating lots plant based foods, and a lot of healthy fats.

The key foods that are are omitted from the Mediterranean are heavily processed foods, refined flours and sugars and fats.  Also, sticking to seasonal vegetables and fruits, olive oil, lots of pulses and whole grains, herbs and spices. These types of very nourishing foods really makes up the core of the Mediterranean diet.

You can make very simple meals and start using simple ingredients such as whole grain pasta with tomatoes and basil, and you will really start to notice a difference in how your body feels.  Cutting out take-a-ways and preparing fresh food yourself can also be very rewarding, you’ll be surprise how increasing your regular fruit intake can really make you feel good.
