Amazon opens Grocery Store: No Milk or Fresh fruits

Amazon silently launched their online grocery store that stocks just the non-perishable food stuff like Snacks, Beverages, Sauces, etc.

The good part about this online grocery store is that Amazon can ship the items to any customer, unlike online grocers that only deliver to limited areas.

According to Reuters, Amazon's latest venture reminds of late 1990's when investors poured money in to a number of online grocery stores such as Webvan which went bankrupt after the dot-com crash of 2001. Another grocer from that era, Peapod however survived.
