Grabbing groceries by land is for peasants. “Bites and More by the Shore,” the world’s first floating supermarket, was recently unveiled in Dubai and will serve people on yachts, sailboats, jet skis and other watercraft who don’t feel like going back to the city to buy groceries. The project was created by French retailer Carrefour and local shopping company Majid Al Futtaim. The store sells more than 300 items, including food, beauty products, nonalcoholic drinks and pharmaceuticals. “Jet skiers and passengers in small sailing crafts can sail up to the Aqua Pod and order at the window counter, pay and receive their packed items,” a Majid Al Futtaim rep wrote in a press release. And for people on bigger boats who can’t moor near the store, they can call a delivery driver to deliver their goods within 45 minutes. The buoyant shop will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., six days a week and runs on rechargeable batteries
