Online retailer Jet.com has launched a pilot program delivering perishable groceries to some customers, going up against rivals like Peapod, Fresh Direct and Amazon's Fresh service.
The company will deliver fresh food such as milk, eggs and produce to customers in parts of New York City, Connecticut and Pennsylvania as well as New Jersey and Washington, DC, Jet.com said Tuesday. Orders received by noon Monday through Friday will be delivered the following day. For orders of more than $35, there's no delivery charge during the test program. Recode reported the news earlier today.
