OnCart closes

Published on .

Online shopping service OnCart, formerly called Shopper's Express, shut down its online operation March 6. OnCart President Allison Abraham announced that the service was closing in a letter on the site. OnCart, which delivered non-perishable groceries, was a leader in the online grocery marketplace. It went head-to-head with Peapod Online Services in June 1997 by going into Atlanta, where the two services competed directly. Peapod and OnCart also competed in Dallas. OnCart said that the Bashas grocery chain in the Phoenix and Scottsdale, Ariz., area is working on a plan for an online grocery program of its own.
