IT could be good: what is the economic return of the streetcars going to Poland Ave? Concerned about tourists going to that area.

Fair point - It should be fairly easy to measure the impact. Good perspective here from Peter Horjus - thelensnola.org/2015/01/21/tou...

"I understand the property owners want to fix their buildings and reopen their businesses. That's great," Pierson said. "But to force people to walk out into a lane of traffic, that's crazy."

Canal Street sidewalk closure puts pedestrians in peril

The contractor working on the property says its the city's responsibility to create a safe detour for pedestrians.

Good Morning Mr. Day!

I hope all is well. After reviewing your comment I would like to clarify Dat Grocery Delivers services. Dat Grocery Delivers does give our customers the option of typing in their list or uploading PDF and excel documents. Shopping list do not require a specific format as stated in your comment. Our clients are also able to resend previous order shopping lists. Clients must register to use the reorder feature.

Unlike Instacart Dat Grocery Delivers does not increase store fees. Dat Grocery Delivers charges in-store rates. Our revenue is derived from the items purchased, delivery and a handling fee. We also patronize all stores to include COSTCO, Trader Joes, SAMS and Restaurant Depot. We also accept the Louisiana Purchase Card. (See FAQs).

Your personal shoppers are local and are paid above minimum wage. Dat Grocery Delivers handles orders in excess of 1000 dollars weekly for clients. A 500.00 order we are more than willing to accomodate.

Have an awesome weekend there is a lot going on in the city this weekend the Asian Pacific Islander Heritage Festival will be going on as well as the Bayou Boogaloo!!!!

If you have any questions feel free to contact us at datgrocerydelivers@gmail.com.

It's such a shame that otherwise good businesses are being decimated—much like taxi services have been by Uber—by their leaders following antiquated models that do not avail themselves of the wonders of modern technology. As the dying taxi industry refuses to see that it is the convenience and features of Uber that make it popular (like knowing that the car is actually on its way and not having to deal with the eternally broken-down credit card machine), so too are other industries not seeing how technology is eclipsing them.

Pre computer age grocery delivery service: "read me a list off the phone"

Post computer age grocery delivery service: "email me a list, upload it, or type it into the form fields."

How is that really innovative? A truly powerful online grocery shopping service is going to balance out ease of use with functional possibilities. Peapod, which really is the gold standard, not only allows your grocery lists, but you can have more than one. Favorite brands? Summer favorites? Christmas baking? Whatever it is your mind can create, you can have a list for it and order from that. What's even better is that sale items are flagged in those lists so you choose to buy the brands on your list that are on sale that week.

Dat Grocery is basically just "upload a list". Sure, you save time in driving and walking the store, but that's not the real time-saver.

If you go to Robert Fresh Market, they don't have lists either and I literally clocked 59 seconds load time for one of their pages. Their average page load time is about the same. Just going from page to page, product to product takes an entire minute each. If you were to buy a mere 30 individual products, you would be there for over a half hour just on the load time of the pages. In what universe is this still acceptable? Well, I think we all know the answer to that, but seriously, can't someone step it up? If you don't want to hear people bitch, stop treating New Orleans like we live in the stone age.

I did want to add a note here about Dat Grocery Delivers. I had a wonderful conversation with Dee Dee, the proprietress of the business, after she offered to call and chat about some of my issues with the state of online grocery shopping in New Orleans. We realized that a few tweaks might be able to make her already easy-to-use service work for my particular need for lists. This is the kind of business owner that I want to see succeed. Kudos!

When I went to your page, I got the following error:

"404. Sorry, we can't seem to find that page, click here to return to the homepage"

Ok, so I managed to get to your site by taking the "Walmart.php#!/c/0/offset=0&sort=normal" off the end of www.quickshopdelivery.yolasite....

This is actually a good start and I like that you have favorites. Even that would save time though I would absolutely add the ability to "add to cart" from directly within favorites. I might even eventually go beyond Favorites to lists since having different lists of favorite brands for different occasions (Summer favorites, Christmas Baking, Thanksgiving, etc.) can be a huge time-saver.

p.s. I think you'll need a much bigger selection for this to be truly functional. Maybe partner with one of the local grocery stores to tie in your data to theirs?
