article imageAmazon.com selling veggies, eggs, more under pilot

By RobotGod     Aug 3, 2007 in Internet
Amazon.com has started a pilot program to sell fresh food like eggs, vegetables and fish. It began the program, AmazonFresh, in Seattle, Washington by invitation only on Wednesday.
Yahoo reports that it is up and running, apparently well underway.
They are not saying if and when the program would be expanded.
"When we feel we are ready to add neighborhoods and add more customers to the invite list, and we can provide those customers with a great experience then we will do so,
They have organic carrots with leafy tops for $1.79 and a 5 ounce steak for $1.99. Daytime shipping is free with a $50 minimum purchase, and predawn shipping is free with a $25 minimum order. Customers can also pick up their goods at assigned stations, adding to the convenience.
"We have 12 of our own trucks that will deliver the products to customer doorsteps," Berman said. "We even bring them inside to your kitchen."
This is interesting. I am curious to see what happens, given the rising cost of goods due to fuels etc. Time will tell. If anyone can pull it off, it would be Amazon.
Imagine if they changed the face of food buying one day in the future.
