In the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, when many people were trying to avoid visiting public places as much as possible, there were lots of things that we missed out on. Visiting friends and family and eating out at restaurants were high on the list of most missed activities. The experience also revealed some things we spend a lot of time doing that, as it turns out, we would be quite happy to do without. One of those things is grocery shopping. When pushing a cart through crowds to search for all of the items on a grocery list, only to then stand in a long line to wait for a cashier to complete the checkout was replaced by store employees that load the groceries in your trunk or deliver them to your front door, we all knew that this was an upgrade that we did not want to let go of.
