Feel like having fresh tuna with your new Nigela cookbook? Good news: Amazon.com is adding a gourmet food store to its online warehouse.
Feel like having some chocolates with your new Yo-Yo Ma CD, or some fresh tuna with your new Nigela cookbook? Amazon is going to make life easier for you, as the company is working on adding a gourmet food store to its ever expanding offerings this summer. Some of the food manufacturers and retailers that supposedly have agreed to participate are Seattle Chocolate Co, SeaBear (smoked and frozen salmon), and Chukar Cherry Co (chocolate-covered cherries and fruit toppings). Taking the same approach as with its apparel & accessories store, Amazon won’t handle the actual fulfillment, but will act as a storefront and handling agent, receiving commissions from participating companies.
