Up to 42% of British shoppers could be converted to online grocery shopping, according to food and grocery research and training charity IGD.The organisation predicted that online would be the UK grocery market’s fastest growing sector, growing in value from £8.9bn to £17.2bn between April 2015 and April 2020. The prediction is supported by new Kantar Worldpanel figures showing a 9.8% growth in online grocery sales in the 12 weeks ending 11 October, 2015.According to IGD ShopperVista Data, 26% of people already class themselves as regular online shoppers and 11% say the internet is where they do most of their shopping. However, 33% describe themselves as lapsed online grocery shoppers, with 28% of those not having shopped online in the last two years.Ben Miller, IGD’s director of retail insight, said: “Online is still on a rapid growth curve, as people make the most of new devices, lower delivery charges and minimum spends, plus greater access to click and collect points.”ConvertedHe added that those who had lapsed from online shopping or had never tried it declared they could be converted by lower delivery charges, a better selection of products and improved order accuracy.The data also found 80% of online shoppers carry out their ‘big shop’ online and are 4% more likely to stick to one retailer, with 54% saying they were always loyal.Miller said: “Clearly, once shoppers have trialled online, many then use it as their main form of grocery shopping, demonstrating growing levels of convenience and loyalty.“Online offers a great opportunity for retailers to really encourage loyalty, with the rise of delivery saver passes, preferential delivery slots and money-off incentives all extremely appealing to shoppers.”

This half proportion venue capacity also applies to salons, barber shops, other personal care services, food retail establishments, dine-in restaurants, and fast food chains. Cadiao further emphasized the value of business relations between Iloilo and Antique provinces. Moreover, Category III industries allowed to operate are financial services, Business Process Outsourcing offices, legal, accounting and auditing firms, scientific, technical and non-leisure services, and wholesale and retail establishments. “I was thinking we should really revive our economy. I want Antiqueños to go back to work and I’d like the businesses to reopen but with protocol, of course,” said Cadiao. Under the governor’s Executive Order 78, among those establishments permitted to operate for Category I include the agriculture and fishery industries, food manufacturing and food supply chains, logistics sector, health-related institutions, information technology and telecommunication companies, and media industry. “I want Antiqueños to go back to work and I’d like the businesses to reopen but with protocol, of course,” says Gov. Rhodora Cadiao. PIA The governor expressed her enthusiasm of wanting Antiqueños to return to work and for businesses to reopen as the local economy has been greatly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. As for Category IV, the operations of establishments dedicated for amusement, gaming, fitness, and kids and tourism industries are allowed but at a maximum of 50 percent operational capacity. Meanwhile, only those hotels and other accommodation establishments that have been accredited as provided by law and relevant issuances of the Department of Tourism and the Department of the Interior and Local Government are allowed to operate. Industries belonging to Category II such as mining and other manufacturing industries, export and electronic commerce, delivery, repair and maintenance, and housing and office services were also given the go signal to open. According to the governor, Antique sourced its essentials from Iloilo as part of the trade, thus, border closure would “paralyze” the businesses in this province. (With a report from PIA/PN) SAN JOSE, Antique – More business operations and work-related activities are expected to resume as President Rodrigo Duterte has classified this province place as a low-risk area for the transmission of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), Gov. Rhodora Cadiao said.

We’ve recently created a list of GeoTours and reward geotrails, so you can easily find them and learn about the cool rewards that await. We’ve also added a new forum where geocachers can discuss their adventures and ask questions about GeoTours and reward geotrails.We hope these new resources can help your travel and geocaching become more rewarding than ever!Check out the map and if a geotrail with a reward is missing, let us know in comments.Washington State Parks GeoTour (Deception Pass) Geocaching HQ Staffer: Chris Ronan, Rock ChalkMy name is Rock Chalk and I’m addicted to GeoTours and geotrails which offer rewards.Whew. That feels better. Now that I’ve admitted my problem, perhaps I can persuade you to follow me into a realm where one can earn geocoins and other prizes, just for finding geocaches. (As if finding geocaches isn’t rewarding enough!) I currently work at Geocaching HQ in Seattle. But long before joining the team here, I discovered my passion for GeoTours and geotrails.GeoTours and reward geotrails are collections of geocaches that take cachers on a tour of a specific area. They’re often sponsored by local tourism boards, historical associations, and even the National Park Service. In most cases, players find a certain number of geocaches to qualify for geocoins and other prizes.A bunch of GeoTour and reward GeoTrail GeocoinsClick the GeoTours and geotrails map to exploreI first became hooked when we happened upon the Washington County GeoTrail while planning a vacation to Maryland a couple years ago. We spent a day visiting some amazing historical spots, finding geocaches, and capping it off by claiming a geocoin. Since then, I’ve enjoyed nearly 20 similar experiences throughout the United States.Official GeoTours, which are organized through Geocaching HQ, have introduced me to the beauty of the riverwalk in Columbus, GA, the incredible learning opportunities at the National Museum of Natural History, and more than 50 of Washington’s amazing state parks. I grew up in Kansas, but had little knowledge of the Santa Fe Trail until their new GeoTour inspired me to follow the Santa Fe Trail through Missouri, Kansas, Colorado, Oklahoma and New Mexico last summer.Clinton County Barn Trail (Ohio) Share with your Friends:More Washington State Parks GeoTour (10,000th find at Deception Pass) SharePrint RelatedInside Geocaching HQ Podcast Transcript (Episode 15): GeoToursJune 18, 2018In “Community”Columbus RiverWalk GeoTourAugust 7, 2015In “GeoTours”HQ GeoTour completed: Souvenir earnedMay 8, 2018Similar post
Tags:#art#web Hallmark spends some $60 million a year on designs for its greeting cards, and yet – with apologies to those artists – it can still be quite a challenge to find the just the right card. Frankly, a lot of cards are ugly. They’re tacky. They’re sappy. So Y Combinator alum Chirply is taking on the greeting card industry by crowdsourcing stationery designs. Chirply had its soft launch a few weeks ago, soliciting designs and voting, and the startup is now ready to open its doors to the retail business.Crowdsourcing has become a popular alternative to the pre-packaged imagery that appears on clothing, with companies like Threadless offering crowdsourced designs on t-shirts and clothing. Chirply works in a similar fashion: designers submit their images. Visitors to the site get to vote on submissions. And the most popular designs become products for sale. Chirply’s greeting card cost $4 (with shipping included in the U.S.) and users can buy any 10 designs in a mix-and-match pack for $25. The cards are all 100% recucled, 100% post-consumer waste. In addition to greeting cards, Chirply also offers the designs printed on notebooks and on wrapping paper.This is great news for consumers (because, come on, we are socially obligated to buy greeting cards and we spend an inordinate amount of time sighing at the selection). But more importantly, Chirply is great news for designers.Co-founders Gagan and Neel Palrecha care a lot about the design community, and they want to insure not only that the Chirply has beautiful designs for consumers to vote on and purchase, but that designers can participate in a site that showcases their work and compensates them fairly. Chirply doesn’t ask designers to submit their original files, for example, just composites (until their submissions are voted on to be printed, of course). And Chirply pays artists a flat fee ($300) up front when their designs are selected, in addition to paying royalties based on sales.Since Chirply’s soft launch, this approach does seem to be working, as the startup has attracted some high quality submissions. That has piqued visitors interest, who on average cast about 30 votes, often over multiple sessions. The top cards on the sites have received well over 500 votes, in just under 5 weeks. audrey watters Related Posts 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People… 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout In addition to opening its retail store today, Chirply is announcing a round of funding, from a lost list of investors including Keith Rabois, Dave McClure, Mitch Kapor, Charles River Ventures, and others.An added bonus: ReadWriteWeb readers can get 30% off their orders if they use the code “RWW” during checkout.

The club always tries to make people, not just the referents, leave in the best way possible. “We disagree with the issue that Valdés has gone out the back door.”He added: “It always hurts when a person leaves the club, and more with the history of Victor. The club wanted it to work well and that his stage was long and successful.”
