business news in context, analysis with attitude

• The Denver Business Journal reports that there appears to be a growth in grocery delivery services in Colorado, with a number of small companies - such as Mile High Organics of Denver and Door to Organics - embracing delivery as way of reaching out to convenience-minded and health-conscious shoppers who are interested in locally-sourced food.

Kroger-owned King Soopers also has seen its delivery business grow as the interested customer base has expanded. “In the beginning, it was a community service for those unable to get fresh groceries, like the elderly or the sick,” says spokesperson Kelli McGannon said. “But now it’s people short on time more than anything else. That convenience is driving growth — it’s almost like another store front.”
