I think this is a population density/driving expectation difference.
Brooklyn has a lot of people who drive and a lot who don't. The major
grocery stores (and the minor ones) deliver. Some deliver free after
$50 or so of purchases; some charge up to $5 for delivery. When I lived
in Sacramento, California - a city - I don't recall any grocery store
