Delivery is All of the Rage

The trends collective is monitoring a growth in the at-home sector.

New York, NY, May 30, 2014 --( Delivery services continue to expand. While historically only a service for special occasions, delivery is quickly become a commodity throughout everyday life.

“Delivery used to be only the mail and pizza,” says a spokesperson. “Now, as technology has improved and purchasing patterns have changed, the at-home acquisition of goods and services is expanding.”

The delivery trend has grown in part because of food delivery. Especially in urban areas, businesses are willing to pay employees to run to various addresses, food in hand. In suburban and more rural areas, curbside pick up is becoming increasingly common. Apps allow consumers to order from a huge list of options.

Now, the trend is moving in a variety of other services. Grocery delivery, shopping delivery, laundry delivery, and dozens of additional options are available through individual providers, delivery services, and startups. Major retailers are getting on the act as well, offering curbside pick up for online customers who do not want to enter the store.

“The habits of the consumer are changing,” says a spokesperson. “Instead of going out to fulfill all needs, consumers are sometimes seeking out others to provide their basic necessities for them. This is culturally acceptable and increasingly possible thanks to the convenience of modern technology.”
