Does anyone have experience with this and whether it would be better to mount storage in the front instead?
Carbon fork, I wouldn't clamp things on it.

Just ride the bike and don't worry about the naysayers. You'll figure out for yourself whether this is the optimal bike for commuting and grocery buying or not. I used a racing bike for a while as my sole means of transportation. If you decide it's not optimal after trying it out, you can keep this as your road bike and pick up something second hand inexpensively as a commuter.

You may decide that this is the perfect bike for your needs.
