business news in context, analysis with attitude

Intriguing story on about Boxed, an internet startup which is positioned this way: "If Amazon is the online Walmart, Boxed is the online Costco."

More impressively, Boxed is less than a year old and was started up with $1 million in initial funding … and now ships to the lower 48 states, with free shipping on orders of $75 or more.

Boxed believes it may have cracked the code on auto-replenishment, something that Amazon has been successfully exploiting with its Subscribe-and-Save program, with what is called a "predictive shopping algorithm."

And, Boxed is only available through a mobile app.

Great story … and you can read the whole thing here.

Good stuff. This is a company where the folks aren't finding excuses, but rather are finding solutions.
