So is this simply a case of younger people more likely to adopt technologies such as using mobile apps to buy groceries quicker than older people?
According to App Annie, less than one-third of 55- to 64-year-olds said they prefer to shop via mobile, and even fewer respondents (18%) ages 65 and older felt the same way.
Boomers are more likely than other generations to have said they’ve formed a coronavirus social bubble, so they do appear to be concerned about the health of those around them.
Perhaps the explanation is a need to get out of the house and socialize? Or maybe it is simply force of habit?
The data begs raises more questions than it answers.
