Delivery.com™ Expands Online Ordering Service to Include Grocers

Platform Provides Easy Online Ordering of Groceries

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Feb 28, 2012) - Delivery.com, a comprehensive local e-commerce platform that enables consumers to order from their favorite neighborhood restaurants and stores, today announced the expansion of their platform to include online grocery shopping. This new initiative offers grocery stores the ability to bring their inventories online and receive online orders from Delivery.com's rapidly expanding user base.

"Delivery.com has a strong history of offering users a simple way to shop online," said Jed Kleckner, CEO of Delivery.com, LLC. "Expanding our online ordering service to include grocery stores is a natural step for us in listening to the needs of our customers."

By becoming members of Delivery.com, grocers will be able to offer local customers access to up-to-date inventory and pricing that has historically been available only in their brick and mortar locations. Delivery.com offers grocers a ready-made e-commerce solution that allows users to browse a store's inventory and easily place online orders for same-day delivery or pickup. In addition to sending orders, Delivery.com also provides technology to conveniently upload inventory and helps handle credit card processing.

Equally as important, the service provides grocers with the opportunity to tap into a larger customer base and receive incremental demand and revenue from a new sales channel. Holiday Farms in Roslyn, New York is an example of a grocer currently using Delivery.com's online ordering service.

"Delivery.com has enabled us to have an online presence that we didn't before," said David Mandell, owner of Holiday Farms. "Now we can reach and serve more customers in our area in a whole new way."

Delivery.com provides an efficient way to reach more customers by enabling grocers to outsource essential operations, including hosting and database management. Additionally, Delivery.com offers the added benefit of a highly trafficked marketplace and a growing network of local consumers.
