Urban Electric Scooter vs. Car for Urban Shopping

Shopping is a common activity of people worldwide. It used to be that you would walk to your local market, or make the long trip to a city center for what you need. Nowadays, people just drive to the store every week or multiple times each week. There are certainly benefits to this new way of shopping: people can buy a wider range of items than ever before in human history. The downside of how we shop is that driving and parking create incredible headaches for consumers. This becomes a problem especially when the average consumer goes to the grocery store 1.5 times per week.   urban-electric-scooter-grocery-shooping

Parking at Grocery Stores is Getting Tougher

Grocery chain Trader Joe's keeps costs down in their stores by using the minimum city-required number of parking spaces. This results in people being angry over parking at Trader Joe’s. But the problem isn’t Trader Joe’s or other grocery stores with limited parking, it’s that people are obligated to use their cars to go shopping. People are worried that online grocery shopping contributes to potential weight gains, but there are also problems with vehicle access to grocery stores. It’s been found that access to a vehicle directly correlates to healthy food access. So you either shop nearby for unhealthy food or need to drive and deal with stressful parking to eat healthily. Shouldn't there be a better option?
