retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Internet Retailing reports that UK-based Sainsbury saw its online sales grow by about 49 percent last year, and that the company now projects that it will be able to double those sales numbers within three years time, in part by expanding from 114 to 200 the number of Sainsbury stores that offers the delivery service.

The retailer doesn’t provide precise numbers, but will say that it has some 64,000 shoppers ordering via the Internet each week, and that Christmas was a peak season for the e-commerce business.
