SimonDelivers, Inc. is an online grocery 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.
