*Bag It: Shoplink.com Folds Abruptly

Share this content:
Shoplink.com shut down yesterday in an abrupt move that was the Internet equivalent of slamming the door in someone's face. The site posted a long message of apology, which read: "It is with deep regret that we have to inform you that ShopLink.com has ceased operations effective immediately."


It's gloomy weather for most online grocers. On Monday, Streamline.com, one of the East Coast's biggest Internet grocers, said it would shut down its operations next week. Peapod, Skokie, IL, nearly put padlocks on its doors earlier this year ,but the Dutch supermarket giant Royal Ahold came to its rescue.


"We had no choice but to close the business," the message on Shoplink's site lamented, further apologizing for "any inconvenience created through this announcement.".
