DailyDirt: Food Delivery

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

After the dot-com bust, Webvan was often cited as one of the biggest flops -- throwing way too much money at a venture that had not proven its business model at all. But grocery delivery services still have some potential to change the way people shop for food, and Webvan itself isn't quite dead. A growing number of grocery stores (from Walmart, Safeway, Netgrocer, Peapod, etc) are expanding home delivery services. Here are just a few interesting stories about having groceries delivered to your door. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post via StumbleUpon.

    You folks are way, way behind the times. You can get your groceries delivered from four or five different supermarket chains just about anywhere in Britain for a surcharge of about $5.
