Trader Joe’s exits grocery delivery war
As the war on grocery delivery heats up, Trader Joe’s is saying goodbye to its version of the service.
Although Walmart, Whole Foods Market and Kroger are all spending billions of dollars on grocery delivery programs, the Monrovia, Calif.-based grocer is ending its delivery service in New York City on March 1, with no apparent plans to bring it back.
