I want
in New Orleans.

www.change.org/p/street-car-to...

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.

Dan proposed this resource for a greener Mardi Gras in New Orleans.
Thumbf7f991f1c75a17d2ca54fe641cac05a0

46 tons of Mardi Gras beads found in clogged catch basins

Specifically: 93,000 pounds of beads on a five-block stretch of St. Charles Avenue downtown.

I agree. There aren't many resources here at all and anything that's available is overpriced.

I'd rather something work than be affordable at this point. I'm willing to pay more for something that actually offers the kind of service that Peapod (and, from what I can see never having used it, Instacart) offers but we are reduced to accepting only second rate solutions. I've also lived anywhere that would tolerate a "water advisory" where one couldn't bathe for three days so I guess I just have to learn to accept the banana republic mentality. Yeah, fat chance on that.

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?

And of course it's not in New Orleans. It really blows my mind that there's not a single one of these types of services here. Not one.

Amen to that! Given that they're based in Alabama and it would make sense for them to focus on markets where Instacart hasn't launched, there may be a sliver of hope ...

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! :)

Of course there's always this:

uptown.robertfreshmarket.com

Not sure if anyone else can get it to work. Five years in and I still can't. Takes at least a minute per page to load and Robert's Fresh Market doesn't care. They'd be better having NO website than THAT website. It's so embarrassing that I'd be afraid to shop there because of it.

I wonder if Amazon's acquisition of Whole Foods solves the problem? www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-wa...

Let us hope. These corporations always tend to prioritize this city last.

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 hope they end up having lists too. They did in the first (and working) version of their site that I had just discovered a week before they changed it!

I still think Amazon will end up controlling this, which is a shame for folks like Rouse's, but then we are all given a choice whether we want to ignore or pursue opportunity.

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.

Hi folks!

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!

Yup. What a shame. I know 10 people ( just on my street) that would use a service just like this.

Albert, I agree. And there's just nothing like it. I would so love to just be able to pick from a list of my favorite brands and generate a grocery shopping list in minutes. It's just so frustrating that there's nothing like this here.
