Probably the greatest thing since sliced bread is the ability to buy it online. It was said that sliced bread came about in response to people complaining that slicing bread using a knife during dinner took a long time, plus crumbs kept on littering the table. Online shopping for food has a similar history: it just took a long time to head to the grocery or food store. Food shop delivery services then, like sliced bread, addressed consumers’ need for convenience.
