A sign of things to come? Upscale U.K. grocer Waitrose reports a 10.2% gain in total sales, led by a 55% jump in deliveries off of a rush of online orders with the Olympics in full swing. In the U.S., Whole Foods Market (WFM) has been dabbling with home delivery of groceries, with densely-populated areas such as Boston and L.A. a focus.

    Home delivery is the best thing since sliced bread for busy people. I have been using it for years in the UK. No more struggling around a busy supermarket. No more standing in line for an age at the checkout. Then best of all it gets delivered to your door and brought into your kitchen - and all for a fiver. I just wonder when they will also include the driver putting the stuff away for you.
