retail news in context, analysis with attitude

InternetRetailer.com reports that Grocery Gateway is leveraging its home delivery infrastructure, which thus far has been mostly focused on food, by delivering product for companies such as Home Depot, Staples and Starbucks.

If these alliances work out, the goal is to expand the service to other retailers in the Toronto area.
KC's View:
This sounds perilously close to the old Streamline.com model that didn't work out…though we have to admit that we always thought that Streamline was a great idea that had bad luck and bad timing.

Great ideas are great ideas…
