Red Mountain Market
Red Mountain Market was an internet-based supermarket with its warehouse located at 1229 1st Avenue South. The store, owned by Thad and Jennifer Hodges, held its grand opening on February 9, 2008, and closed that November. The market's concept allowed customers to order groceries online (or via phone or fax) for same-day or next-day delivery (within an 8-mile radius) or warehouse pickup.
In their first eight weeks, advertising with flyers distributed in the loft district and a billboard, the Market attracted 200 users.
Red Mountain Market carried about 1,500 items, including meat, pantry, household, drugstore, pet items and other groceries, most of which are organic or all-natural. Customers could also choose to donate food items to local food banks.
