My Supermarket online
Have you ever heard of My Supermarket? It is a very cool online shopping center. You pick the items you want and it tells you what the prices are in several stores. You then choose which store to make your order and voila! the food is at your door. It even compares delivery costs. The stores include Mega BaInternet, Shufersal Online, Rami Levy Ba Internet, Yaynot Bitan and Victory. Of course if you live in the boonies, most of these choices aren’t relevant, but still it is nice to see the different prices.
This is a sample of what a page looks like:
You can see the price at all of the stores, if it is on sale when the sale is over, and a graph of that item’s price over time.
They even have a price warning alert– you put in the items you like to purchase and they will send you an alert when it is on sale! You do have to register on the site (email and phone number) to use the alert system.
As the Syms commercial used to say, “An educated consumer is our best customer.”
