ShopAid - Helping you get everything you need [Formerly 'OneStockShop'; merged with ShoppingAid]

Panic buying is everywhere.

  • How much grocery does your household need as one week's supply?

  • What would be the convenient and least crowded route to get everything you need?

  • What would be the alternatives if what you want is not in stock?

  • How would you support independent shops in your local area?

This idea is a proof-of-concept to explore how to collect and present stock availability and store busyness information to shoppers to inform their shopping decisions.

We would like to do this in an ethical way, i.e.

  • All shops (chain and independent) should get equal exposure

  • There is an optimal shopping experience for all, everyone gets what they need

See the idea pitch deck here.

    Sally, it's great that you are interested in joining. Would be lovely to have you and Tana to do the UX research and design. Let's wait for the organisers to confirm the idea shortlist and go from there! Fingers crossed.

    Nice concept. In my country, the new rule is you cannot travel more than 10km from your house.

    So that adds another layer of complexity.

    Plus, I should think there can be a page where the police at roadblocks can verify if the stores are indeed unavailable stock or closed.

    Innocent people are getting turned around or arrested at roadblocks because they are struggling to get their necessities from other further places which have a good stock.
