Request from: Fahad Alhathal, University of Southampton
Grocery shopping is considered one of the instrumental activities of daily living which helps older people live independently. My research aims to explore grocery shopping experiences in a physical store of customers aged 65 and over in the UK and to design better solutions by using emerging technologies that supermarkets could adopt.
I should like to recruit around 300 participants aged 65 and over to complete an online-based questionnaire based on their grocery shopping experiences. Completing the questionnaire will take approximately 10 minutes.
