Online shopping is nothing new, especially in plugged-in South Korea. But one company says it's going further. It's testing out a virtual supermarket in a public place.

At Seolleung underground station in Seoul, there's a row of brightly lit billboards along the platform, with hundreds of pictures of food and drink - everything from fruit and milk to instant noodles and pet food.

Sure it would make things easier if you don't have the time, but I prefer the physical shops. How abouts you, physical or virtual shop?

definitely physical, I even resent the electronic cashier things.

I prefer to have someone else scan and put my items in a bag for me as a convenience. (eat shit americans)

EDIT: Put your items in bag you lazy git When I worked in a supermarket I despised people that asked me to pack their bags.

I will. And I won't be embarrassed when I buy it from the store.

You are EXTREMELY WRONG! I have played it. I own an 18W and it would be an awful stereo amp, it's way too bright, breaks up too easily and so on. Secondly, why would a guitar store sell an hifi amp.

I'd prefer that. Especially where I live, in the city. Would mean I don't have to carry tons of heavy shopping bags back home, just take my phone out with me.

I guess it would depend on if it costs for the delivery, and how fast it would arrive at my home

Noooooo...I live in Australia, pretty much it's commonplace for the cashier to bag them.

Except at Aldi, and they pay their cashiers a lot more than they do at the bigger supermarkets.

It's good workout, brah.

Besides, won't this mean a lot of people could be out of a job?

So if you need it quickly then you're buggered? As long as every shop ever doesn't end up like this then I'm okay with this.

It's annoying and an inconvenience, especially if I've bought other things on the same trip out.

Things with that require less effort appeal to people, that's why we have cars, esculators all over the place, even automatic doors..

If they can get the right balance of speed and price, I think this could take off, around the world

I'm confused.

They always bag/scan here. I don't think I've ever been to a store that doesn't.

I was taking a jab that you're 'motivated' to tip the person...poorly executed though.

But what about buying like vegetables and fruit etc?

Don't you like to see what it is you're getting?

It could be all dried up and fuck. Same with meat. It could be almost green, as it seems to be in most Tescos.

how can anyone actually enjoy standing in line at the supermarket?delivered grocerys is far from being a new idea anyway

One day.....You will have a touchpad on your refrigerator connected to the internet. You will be able to do all of your shopping right there on that touchpad and your food would be delivered to you on a reasonable date of your choosing from a provider of your choosing. Thats the future of grocery shopping. Make it happen world.

...Is it not your job? I don't know what it's like in other countries but you would bag every item for the customer here... if you asked to do it yourself the cashier would look at you weird. Except as someone mentioned, Aldi's, there they just scan everything really quick and pretty much throw it at you .

Part of my job description is to bag items that i've sold. If the customer starts bagging, i'm not going to stop them though.

It could be bad for people who work in grocery if it catches on but as far as being convenient, I'd dig it when I don't feel like going out and buying food.

Don't think I'd use it when buying stuff like meat or veggies though.

I think this is one of the first steps towards future dystopian societies where everyone sits on their ass all day and some invisible hand feeds them what someone wants them to hear. Mark my words.

It's already started with people having their bags done by staff. Can't you people pack your own damn bags? This is why you're fat, america.

I wouldn't be surprised if this took off, but it probably won't replace physical grocery stores any time soon, if ever.

You forgot that the refrigerator will notice when you are low/out of basic stuff like milk and eggs and will add those to the list for you.

No, it's pretty much because someone packs your bags in the grocery stores.

Packing my own bags gave me the muscles I have today. Also going to the gym helped.

Well in the UK there's a 'shop' called Argos and it seems to be pretty successful... which I think, from that small extract I read, is kinda similar to this
