retail news in context, analysis with attitude

In Florida, the Sun-Sentinel reports that Whole Foods is partnering with Cravy, "a company that delivers food from more than 60 restaurants, to test a food delivery program in West Palm Beach and Palm Beach."

The deal is separate from Whole Foods' arrangement with Instacart, to which it is outsourcing the delivery/fulfillment function.

Delivery fees will range between $9.99 and $15.99, depending on location.

And, the story says, "Cravy, based in West Palm Beach, and Whole Foods have also teamed up to offer yacht, jet and estate provisioning services. Provisioning delivery rates start at $59.99."
