Latest Mile High Organics News

Uncategorized jemrichtly An organic online grocer closed its doors today. Mile High Organics, a Denver area organic grocery delivery service, let its customers know today that it was going out of business. The reason the company provided was that it had not been able to reach the critical mass of customers necessary to cover the company’s costs. I’ll offer three potential reasons for the company coming up short for your consideration. First is the requirement that customers be limited to one day a week for delivery. I write about this structure in The Local Yolk while describing Irv and Shelly’s Fresh Picks, a home delivery organic grocery company in Chicago. I understand that this structure is designed to limit unprofitable trips (i.e., create clusters of concentration within the company’s delivery area). But that is just not how the modern consumer has been groomed to behave. Quite the contrary. I contend in The Local Yolk that to have a serious shot at a home delivery service, the provider has to subject itself to higher short-term losses by offering a daily delivery option but thereby increase the chances the company finds a much larger audience more quickly. A second potential catalyst for the closure is the proliferation of excellent brick-and-mortar retail options for buying organic and local food. In a town of less than 9,000, I have access to a Safeway, a King Sooper, and a Natural Grocer Vitamin Cottage. This exacerbates in a way the first problem above. Why wait a week when I can get the same quality product today. All retail, unless you’re carrying something exclusive (proprietary), becomes a commodity service eventually. Amazon is on a march to make home delivery a same day service. Weekly delivery is asking too much patience and planning on the part of the customer. The last potential catalyst is just direct competition. I don’t know if Door to Door Organics (the other provider in Denver) is doing a better job or competing aggressively on price. Door to Door is in multiple cities and probably has a lot better funding as a consequence. That company’s prospects just improved considerably. Share this:
