The last mile of logistics in getting food from the warehouse into the consumer's house is getting exciting. Schwan's
has a very large delivery area for quite awhile, but only with frozen food. Amazon Fresh has expanded to L.A. Safeway
is expanding quickly too. Peapod has been in this space for awhile but hasn't expanded very far.
But sometimes, you just need a Whopper
delivered. Daily milk delivery doesn't seem to be on the radar.

... A creature with a huge mouth and an enormous gut, no brain and no soul...... How does one get past the firewall that ensures the consumers never actually talk to a grocery-store manager?...
from the Globe and Mail struck a chord in me. Decline of the empire or simplistic disavowal of the grease that runs the machinery?

My grocery store tells me my wife's cycle
- A few months of shopping after Kroger started its 'Plus' card and they know more about my wife than her children do. Yep, we have been using the Kroger card for a while now, but no more. For the last two months I have received a cupon for tampons only days before my wife needs them. Big Brother is not on TV, he is in the supermarket. Join the boycott at nocards.com.
