In its first business-to-business deal, struggling online grocer Webvan is going into business with one of the last surviving online pet stores, the companies announced Monday.
Webvan will host a PetsMart.com tab on its front door starting Friday and will deliver the pet products. The tab takes customers to a new Web page created for the joint venture. The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The deal marks Webvan's first foray into the business-to-business sector, as the grocer will be delivering another company's goods for the first time.
The once high-flying Webvan (wbvn), which operates in 10 markets and has a $1 billion infrastructure contract with engineering-construction company Bechtel, was warned last week that it faces delisting on the Nasdaq because of its slumping stock price. -- Greg Sandoval, Special to ZDNet News
