When the streetcar is extended down to Poland more businesses on St. Claude will THRIVE throughout the areas the streetcar passes. More jobs will be created IN THOSE STREETCAR ACCESSIBLE AREAS all the way down St. Claude in Bywater as a result. Streetcars will thereby economically strengthen that part of the city. This is not an issue of buses helping locals, over Streetcars helping tourists. Streetcars will improve the area whereas buses will just get locals out of the area to work in areas of the city that currently have more jobs, largely because tourism prevails. (Thriving business and successful tourism is largely due to streetcar accessibility by tourists.) One of the practical issues involving the debate continuing the streetcar down St. Claude to Poland Ave. is getting the streetcar over the train tracks. This Petition (link provided above) addresses this with a simple, practical, solution.
Specifically: 93,000 pounds of beads on a five-block stretch of St. Charles Avenue downtown.
Simplify your life with grocery delivery! Shipt makes grocery shopping fast, simple and convenient through the Shipt mobile app and reliable Shoppers.
I doubt very much that I am the only person in this city that is embarrassed by how truly behind New Orleans is regarding the ability to order groceries online and have them delivered. I suppose the Walmart pick up thing is somewhat of a start but I doubt I'd actually use Walmart for groceries but at least they have lists, which is more than I can say for any of these other services. Instacart, Peapod, Shipt, heck, aliens from space, please come here to New Orleans and give us an efficient online grocery shopping and delivery service! :)
I don't know how reliable this is after so many years of my emailing and Facebook messaging them with no reply, but I finally got a reply from Robért Fresh Market:
"You can expect a new site and online shopping platform very soon. Thank you."
One can hope! :)
I just started a small side project of shopping and delivering groceries. I live about an hour away from New Orleans but am willing to travel to New Orleans on the weekends to buy and delivery groceries. If anyone is interested email me at Ambersgroceries@gmail.com
Thanks in advance.
This Neighborland post (ahead of it's time as it was) was the inspiration behind Crescent Cart - our local Grocery Delivery Service available to residents of the greater New Orleans Area (and beyond).
Please check us out: www.crescentcart.com/
Your feedback & criticism are welcome (and encouraged) - We're new, (but growing!) and would LOVE to hear what you think! Without customers - there is no Crescent Cart; We NEVER forget this - ya'll are #1.
Since day 1 we've strived to offer you: the most competitive pricing / fastest delivery options available / absolute easiest ordering process / and a number of other features that no other online grocery delivery services offer here in NOLA.
We are JUST getting started and have exciting plans to expand set for this year (soon you'll be able to shop for products just like you would from the industry leading grocery & homegoods delivery apps like Instacart and Google Express)!
P.s. Why not give us a try? Your first delivery is FREE!
