Time savings (inter-item correlation = 0.20)[edit | edit source]

Items[edit | edit source]

  • The time to place an order becomes much shorter as I use the system more.
  • The total time (including travel time to and from the store) to place an order and pickup groceries at the store.

The first item rated from 1 (strongly disagree) to 7 (strongly agree). The second item asked customers to rate their experience with Online ordering vs. their experience with a “traditional” store. The specific question asked was: Please rate the degree of change when using the Internet for ordering groceries through Grocer X in comparison to shopping in a neighborhood store (i.e. an Albertsons, Kroger, Safeway, Sainsbury’s etc.). The question was rated on a scale from 1 (much worse than in-store shopping) to 4 (about the same) to 7 (much better than in-store shopping).
