Yesterday, I had a long to do list. I needed to go to the bank, get gas, and get a few groceries. And parents know that errands with kids can make everything take longer. While we were finishing up our lunch, I logged into Zoomin Market and ordered the few grocery items our family needed. Finished up our lunch, got gas, drove thru Zoomin Market to get our groceries, and then off to the bank. Luckily because the bank took such a long time, it was great that I saved so much time by using Zoomin Market.
Zoomin Market is the first in the United States online, drivethru grocery store. And I was honored to get a behind the scenes tour over a week ago and meet with the owner. I met with John Yerkes, 18 years in the industry, who gave me a tour of Zoomin Market. John said his passion is to "give back time in your life." And I know that grocery shopping can sometimes take 1-2 hours just going through aisle after aisle and checking out. Imagine what you could do with having an extra one to 2 hours back in your week.
Inside Zoomin Market looked just like you would think it would. I really liked that the cold food was actually kept in a cold refrigerator. While I was there, I helped gather up an order and I was happy to see the food was checked for expiration date. I hate getting home and finding that I have purchased expired food.
Overall, I was very happy with the time saved by using Zoomin Market. I would say that it does cost more but you are saving a lot time. And instead of using a drivethru restaurant because you don't have the 1-2 hours to go to the store, you can place your order thru Zoomin Market and have it ready for you when you get there. And for your first purchase, Zoomin Market has offered a code, FIRSTZOOM, to get $5 off your first purchase. So Zoom On!!
