We have all been going to the grocery stores for as long as we can remember. They fulfil the basic needs of our daily life and were a daily routine of many people around the world. Apart from going to the grocery shops for buying grocery, many people also got together there simply to catch up on the daily neighborhood gossip. However, this is not the case anymore.
