Tyler McCall understands the perils of the grocery store: the crowded aisles, the long lines, the impulse buys. He's created a business to address those problems. Simply, To Go, which launches this week, offers a personal grocery shopping and delivery service.
“Asheville doesn't have anything like this at the moment, and I think it's something that people really benefit from,” McCall says. “You'll have so much more access to what someone can deliver to your home because it's coming from a grocery store.”
Order on the Simply, To Go website, and select the store and the brands. Then, Simply, To Go delivers the groceries and charges a fee based on the price of the purchases. For $100 of groceries, Simply, To Go adds a $24 charge (including a suggested tip of $4).
One of the perks? No impulse buys. “The good thing with using a shopping and delivery service is we're not going to buy anything unless it's on your list,” McCall says. “You end up spending $20 more than you thought you would in the checkout aisle.”
