Seniors & E-Commerce: Cracking the Code to Online Shopping

Online shopping options for seniors range from groceries and ready-to-eat meals to quick pharmacy pick-ups and a superb choice of items for daily convenience. As we continue to social distance, using our phones or tablets to master how to shop online is a great way to source whatever we need without having to leave home. 

In times gone by, many of us would have relied on family or friends to pick up essentials during the age of coronavirus. Today, most things we need to enjoy independent senior living in Knoxville, TN are simply a click away.

An Online Shopping Guide for Seniors

Struggling to work out how to order groceries online? Instacart provides an easy-to-use website and app to order what you need from a store or pharmacy. Once you’ve completed your order, a personal shopper will pick up your weekly groceries or even your monthly prescription. If something is out of stock, they’ll shoot you a text about substitutions. There’s an individual service fee for each shopping trip (usually 5%), or you can enjoy unlimited deliveries by paying for a monthly or annual subscription.

If you’re jonesing for a nutritious lunch from Jason’s Deli or a pastry from Cinnaholic, then these local eateries offer online payment and delivery. Choose from Uber Eats, Bite Squad, or DoorDash to decide what you want and place your order. The food will be brought to your door with no contact. Do you have other favorites? Downtown Knoxville has compiled a list of local restaurants that offer delivery or curbside pick-up.

Many of Knoxville’s retailers also have online stores where you can browse gifts, books, and clothing and have purchases shipped to your home. For other online shopping, try Amazon.com and get free, fast shipping with a monthly Prime membership

Bargain hunters will love the Honey app, a web browser extension and mobile app that automatically searches for promo codes and discounts to ensure you get the best deals.
