Amazon Orders 20,000 Mercedes Vans to Bolster Delivery Program - Bloomberg
Daimler AG is emerging as a beneficiary of Inc.’s booming package-delivery needs, with the e-commerce giant ordering 20,000 of the German automaker’s Mercedes-Benz Sprinter vans.
Mercedes, which just opened a new plant in North Charleston, South Carolina, started producing Amazon-branded vans for the online retailer’s Delivery Service Partner program, which enables small businesses to lease vans for deliveries through third-party fleet management companies.
Amazon is assisting small businesses across the U.S. by providing discounted vehicles, fuel, insurance, uniforms and access to delivery technology, the Seattle-based company said in June. The bulk purchase of Sprinter vans makes Amazon the largest buyer of the model, Mercedes said in a statement Wednesday.

Fast Food Races to Meet Americans’ Growing Demand to Eat at Home - Bloomberg
Restaurants are getting dinged by the convenience of Netflix, the advent of pre-made meals, the spread of online grocery delivery, plus crushing student debt and a focus on healthy eating. Eighty-two percent of American meals are prepared at home -- more than were cooked 10 years ago, according to researcher NPD Group Inc. The latest peak in restaurant-going was in 2000, when the average American dined out 216 times a year. That figure fell to 185 for the year ended in February, NPD said.

Don’t be fooled by reports of rising U.S. restaurant sales at big chains like McDonald’s Corp. Increases have been driven by price hikes, not more customers. Traffic for the industry was down 1.1 percent in July, the 29th straight month of declines, according to MillerPulse data.

The technology enables Häagen-Dazs to be delivered to a customer’s exact location, even if they aren’t standing still. It also allows customers to track the status of their deliveries in real time.
General Mills ran a one-day trial last Friday in Russell Square, London. Samuel Horner, senior brand manager at Häagen-Dazs UK, told Food Navigator, “Depending on how this goes, we will evaluate how it could fit into our future consumer engagement plans in the UK and beyond.”

Good Housekeeping Comes To The Mall Of America For A Holiday Season Pop-Up |
The GH Institute is the testing arm of the Good Housekeeping brand – it reviews and ranks many thousands of products per year for the magazine, as well as for its associate web portals, Good Housekeeping Online and Green Good Housekeeping Seal. The pop-up shop brings brands the ability to not only get recommendations from the lab, but also to buy them directly.

Buy them, but not walk out of the shop with them, as one of the design features of the shop is that it will be shoppable with Amazon SmileCodes, which shoppers can use in the Amazon app to pay for their goods and have them delivered to their homes.
