A new Internet grocery service, GroceryStreet.com, made its debut Nov. 15 with its first retailer, Value Center Market, Livonia, Mich., the first store to offer this new type of Internet grocery shopping. The service allows customers to select the groceries for purchase from any Internet-connected computer; they will be bagged and ready for pick up at a preset time. GroceryStreet.com plans to launch additional Michigan retail sites in the coming weeks and will ultimately roll out a national effort in 2001.
The Black Book, a division of BrandEra.com, publisher of creative sourcebooks for the advertising industry, will produce an online version in early 2001 (hwhpr.com/blackbookpress).
