Users of the grocery delivery service Fresh Direct were flummoxed to find its website was gone on Christmas. In its place was a generic Network Solutions splash page, which caused some users to speculate the company had failed to renew its domain name and others to theorize the Queens-based company had quietly gone out of business. For some, puzzlement turned to desperation when they realized there might not be any more triple-washed baby arugula on their doorstep in the future. Gothamist and Diner’s Journal report the glitch was ISP-related, however; the company is very sorry it scared everyone and says its site is operational once more. Now, if they’d only roll out that bike delivery service. [Gothamist, Diner’s Journal/NYT, Earlier]
Yes, they do have bananas (once again).
