It should come as no surprise that Americans in this day and age are all about convenience. The easier something is, the better. That is why the smart phone has seen such growth in the last few years. Now, instead of carrying multiple devices, people only need to carry one that can do everything for them. It can surf the internet, serve as a game console, be used as a way to connect with people through various social media platforms, it can take pictures, record video, play music, track your finances, navigate you on the road, make calls, text, write and send emails, store information and even make orders. In the last few years, the rise of delivery services and apps has increased. From food to clothing to marijuana delivery and more, here are a few of the things people like getting delivered to their home:
- Food- Food is one of the top things people get delivered to their homes. With so many new apps that allow people to get food from restaurants that usually do not offer delivery via the use of a third party driver, food sales have increased quite a bit over the years. Instead of just the standard fare like sesame chicken, beef lo mein, hot and sour soup, egg rolls and Kung Pao pork from the local Chinese restaurant, you can now get your hands on pho, pad thai, spicy curry, sushi, and even Korean BBQ, all while sitting on your couch.Instead of pizza from the greasy joint down the street, you could now order ravioli from the mom and pop restaurant across town or even grilled fish from the seafood joint by the water. There are so many options for food that you would never get bored from ordering them and getting them delivered.
- Marijuana- With the legalization of marijuana in both a medical and recreational capacity (in some states), medical marijuana delivery has become increasingly popular. Medical marijuana delivery is particularly good for people who either live far away from a dispensary or for people who are dealing with chronic pain or other symptoms that prevent them from going out and about to much. An example of this is cancer patients who are undergoing chemotherapy. Chemotherapy has some uncomfortable side effects that can be mitigated through marijuana use, but oftentimes patients do not want to be out and about in order to pick up a prescription. Instead, they are relying on overnight cannabis delivery to get what they need to feel better.
- Household goods- With the ever-growing popularity of Amazon, people almost never have a reason to leave their house to run errands anymore. Amazon can deliver groceries, cleaning supplies, household necessities like toilet paper, paper towels, tissues and more as well as so many odds and ends that many people do not even realize.
The ease of the internet has helped delivery services boom and provided people with quicker and more efficient access to what they need when they need it.
