business news in context, analysis with attitude

• Pure-play e-grocery retailer FreshDirect has announced the launch of same-day delivery services in Manhattan starting next week, with customers in nearby Brooklyn and Westchester County expected to soon have access to same-day service.

At the same time, FreshDirect said it was expanding its broader geographic service area to more parts of Connecticut and the Washington, DC, suburbs. Additional geographic expansion is expected over the coming year, the company said.

FreshDirect noted that this is its first expansion since moving to a new Bronx, New York, headquarters and facility last year.
