Online Grocery Shopping, Take Two

Online grocery shopping is a wonderful thing! We use FreshDirect for our main grocery store and YourGrocer for bulk (primarily baby and drink stuff). The convenience is terrific – you schedule when you want things delivered and the quality of food has been very high as well… much better in fact than many of the very local stores in our neighborhood. There’s no going back…

After the spectacular crashes of big-name Internet grocers in the late 1990s, the dream of a grand new wave of online food stores appeared to fizzle. But with intentionally meager fanfare, grocers have made Internet shopping available to tens of millions of consumers nationwide, and upcoming expansions will expand it to millions more.

Industry watchers say it’s no longer a question of whether Internet grocery can be successful, but rather of how big it will become. [Wired News]
