SimonDelivers, Inc. is an onlinegrocery that primarily serves the Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area of Minnesota and western Wisconsin. Founded in 1999, it is one example of a company that successfully weathered the dot-com boom and bust at the turn of the 21st century, in contrast to the famous "dot-bomb" grocery Webvan which was created around the same time but went out of business in 2001. SimonDelivers also had a financially difficult period that year, but secured $15 million in funding and has focused on developing the local market rather than expanding to other areas of the United States. Online means being connected to the Internet or another similar electronic network, like a bulletin board system. ...
