I remember when major on-line grocery ordering was a dot com idea gone bust. I'd heard about Amazon Fresh making a foray into the grocery delivery business in Seattle late last year, but this is the first time I'd seen it in the neighborhood (perhaps because a lot of people schedule pre-dawn delivery and I only do pre-dawn sleeping ;^) ). Locally most folks I know who get food deliveries use New Roots Organic veggies and Smith Brothers Farms dairy. Well, Amazon.com is headquartered here in Seattle, and Amazon Fresh apparently operates out of Kirkland, so I guess that makes this a local business. I wonder if they purchase from local providers? Service extends only to the Seattle area and only to certain zip codes at that. I wonder if this will be big in Belltown if it expands there?
