Start Fresh Approach
start fresh approach of Webvan, launched in 1990.
Their business model:
start a totally new nationwide, online grocery distribution system serving 10 cities at first, and then expanding to additional major cities.
Most pundits and investors thought the entire online grocery business model was either a failure of fraud!
For these reasons:
* Costs of building entirely new distribution system of warehouses and truck fleets.
* The expense of marketing.
* Huge IT infrastructure.
Webvan compounded its problem by:
* offering below-market prices.
* Free delivery of even small orders at just about any time of the day.
Sam's Club, Tesco, BJ's
... and many other firms are leveraging their existing nationwide distribution supply chin systems and their thousands of local store!
Sam's Club offers to customers a "Click N' Pick" service which means: order online, pick it up at the nearest Sam's Club store and you won't even have to stand in line to pay for your groceries. Or having it delivered by the local stores.

track each customer's past purchases then present them on screen for reordering.

* Web apps: applications for smart phones.
