Kozmo Reincarnated As Diaper Delivery Service
from the we'll-be-right-over-again dept
Back in the heyday, Kozmo.com was a part of an era of convenience funded largely by ambitious VCs. Though it certainly was nice to have DVDs and orange juice delivered within the hour, Kozmo’s refusal to charge delivery fees and overexpansion doomed it to be one of the dotcom bubble burst poster children. Well, considering 2005 is being lauded as the new 1999, it’s fitting that they’re back at it again; some former Kozmo employees have started a new one-hour delivery service focusing this time on the needs of time-strapped new parents. Sounds like the new MaxDelivery has taken some lessons to heart from its experience with Kozmo. Once again, they’ve started in New York, which is a good thing considering the population density of delivery-addicted New Yorkers. And this time around, they’re charging $4.95 for delivery for orders under $50. I hope they also have cool messenger bags — I’d love to pick one of them up on eBay in about a year.
