And exactly how long do you think that the direct delivery model for supermarkets has been in place? The answer is - a very long time. It wasn't just thought up last year. And yet the market remains.
 
There have been some very large advertised rollouts in about the past 1o years. And yet the market remains.
 
It doesn't matter why people go to the supermarket to buy their food. What matters is that they do. Cost has nothing to do with it because the profit margins for supermarkets in any market with competition has been razor thin for a very long time. Probably close to 20 years. And competition exists in all metropolitan areas which is exactly the area that would be most likely to adopt a delivery model. Except people don't adopt it. They keep going to the store.
 
The reality is that the market accepts whatever the consumer wants. If consumers wanted the delivery model then it would have already happened. There is no technological break through possible with food itself that would change the existing market dynamics. It would take something completely unrelated to alter it.
