Dallas may be ripe for grocery delivery | Dallas Morning News

Dallas may be ripe for grocery delivery | Dallas Morning News | Online Marketplaces | Scoop.it
Fifteen years ago, we had a bounty of online grocers operating in Dallas with expensive vans and distribution centers. GroceryWorks was filling 3,500 local orders a week in 2000. But the company, partly owned by Safeway, shut down the following year, the last online grocer to close in the area. Peapod, Webvan, Homegrocer, Albertsons and Kroger all tried it here and quit. Now the on-demand economy and its apps are causing companies to revisit groceries and the last mile to your refrigerator.

Is the US supermarket industry overbuilt?

Is the US supermarket industry overbuilt? | Online Marketplaces | Scoop.it
Is the US supermarket industry overbuilt? This is a big question and a tough conversation. Key players in the UK supermarket sector are already confronting it, and many markets in the US will soon follow if they are not already there. Figuring out how to respond requires systematic rethinking of the entire organization’s function, from the head office down to the number of SKUs stocked in any given category. To start the conversation, I reached out to Will Treasure, Director, Operations for The Javelin Group, a part of Accenture.
