New online grocer caters to students

Living off campus without a car just became much easier, thanks to the debut of an online grocery store, Gopher Grocery, created specifically to serve the needs of University of Minnesota students, at least those who live in the 55414 and 55455 zip codes. The store carries about 500 products--a mixture of college student favorites such as cereal, frozen pizzas and ramen noodles, and fresh produce, meats, and dairy products.

Gopher Grocery requires a minimum purchase of $25 and charges $2 for delivery, which it claims takes about one hour during its limited hours of operation, listed clearly on its website.
