business news in context, analysis with attitude

Re/code reports that Walmart has acquired Parcel, described as “a Brooklyn, N.Y.-based company that handles scheduled and same-day delivery services in New York for online retailers like Bonobos and meal-kit companies like Chef’d and Martha Stewart’s Martha & Marley Spoon.”

According to the story, “Parcel will continue to serve those clients, but Walmart will also utilize the startup’s technology and network of delivery employees to ramp up its own same-day delivery offerings for both and in New York City.”
