Fresh Direct Goes Offline, But Not for Long

By
Yes, they do have bananas (once again).

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]
