Door to Door Organics closes

This online retailer shut down about a week ago citing financial difficulties with "recent events in the online grocery industry" causing that. I know the whole thing about the downfall of brick and mortar retail but I also think that there will be a bloodbath in smaller retailers like D2D Organics. I think that the low margins of food retailing is a cause of this, and frankly, to build an online retailer that deals with perishables you need an infrastructure that smaller players like D2D Organics just don't have.
