Need curry paste in a hurry? A bottle of fizz in a flash? Jalapenos in a jiffy? ShopWings, launched last week in Munich, is a new online grocery service that delivers within two hours of your order being placed.
Once you’ve added your items to your online shopping trolley, ShopWings applies an algorithm to detect where there’s matching stock near your location. Then it uses a network of ‘personal shoppers’ to deliver from local shops.
At the moment it’s only running in the one city. But there are big plans for expansion – could this be the end of the inevitable Saturday afternoon dinner party ingredient panic?
