large supermarkets certainly will be.

 
I doubt that will happen.
 
Clothing follows the same model and it has a delivery model that works yet there are many more clothing stores than supermarkets.
 
And at least where I am most super markets have large customer traffic basically from 9am to 9pm with that tampering off into the wee hours. But with enough traffic that they remain open 24 hours almost every day of the year.
 
The delivery model is based on the premise that the consumer knows what they want. That can work with a flat screen TV and perhaps even a movie, but it doesn't work with chips, beer and fruit loops.
