Amazon starts selling groceries

From Reuters:

Internet retailer Amazon.com (AMZN.O: Quote, Profile, Research) has started selling groceries on its Web site, a cautious step into a business that was one of the biggest casualties of the dot-com collapse.

The service is limited to non-perishable goods such as cereal, pasta and canned soup, but Amazon can ship those items to any customer, unlike online grocers that only deliver to limited areas.

“Because we only carry products when we can offer great prices and free shipping, we don’t carry everything (yet!),” the company said in a notice on its Web site (http://www.amazon.com).
