The vast majority of Americans don’t buy groceries online or order meal kits, according to a new study.
Gallup’s new Consumption Habits poll found that 84 percent of U.S. adults never order groceries online and 89 percent never order meal kits.
“Americans are much more inclined to simplify mealtime by ordering takeout or by going out to eat,” the study states. “However, nearly all Americans still shop for groceries the old-fashioned way — by going to a store.”
The study found that 81 percent of Americans shop for groceries in person once or more a week and that 45 percent eat out once or more a week.
Though almost all Americans report visiting grocery stores, those with higher incomes go more frequently, according to Gallup. Ninety percent of those in households earning $75,000 or more per year shop for groceries in stores at least weekly, versus 84 percent of those earning between $30,000 and $74,999 and 63 percent of those earning less than $30,000.
Gallup found little difference in store visits by gender, age or whether an adult has children in the household.
