Lookout Costco!  Boxed is taking shopping  to the next level

11/23/2013 - 00:00

Boxed began building its e-commerce platform just six months ago, with a little over $1 million in initial funding. Three months later, it went live with an app for the iPhone (there’s now an Android app too but so far, at least, it’s not building a shopping website) and a pilot program delivering in New York and New Jersey. 

It rapidly expanded, and as of a week ago, it can now ship to everywhere in the lower 48 states of the US. Shipping is free on orders of $75 or more, and they are delivered overnight to Philadelphia, Washington DC, Boston, New York and Los Angeles, and within two days to everywhere else.
