Amazon starts online grocery

Posted on Saturday, Jun 17 2006 @ 05:02 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Amazon has started selling groceries on its website:
The service is limited to non-perishable goods such as cereal, pasta and canned soup, but Amazon can ship those items to any customer, unlike online grocers that only deliver to limited areas.

"Because we only carry products when we can offer great prices and free shipping, we don't carry everything (yet!)," the company said in a notice on its Web site (http://www.amazon.com).

Seattle-based Amazon has seen sales growth slow amid increased competition, and has invested heavily in technology and content to draw in new customers and increase loyalty.
