I believe 1 800 and Provide are both growing at the expense of the brick and mortars. This could be a harbinger of good news for 1 800 as well.


Provide Commerce, Inc. (PRVD), an e-commerce marketplace of websites for perishable goods, today reported record shipments for the Mother's Day shopping period defined as the seven shipping days leading up to Mother's Day, or the immediately prior Saturday to Saturday period.
