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. During the period, shipments for the Company's core consumer floral business were more than 770,000, compared to approximately 560,000 in the Mother's Day period a year ago.

Commenting on the Mother's Day results, Bill Strauss, Chief Executive Officer of Provide Commerce, stated, "We are extremely pleased with our shipment growth during this Mother's Day period. We credit our record holiday results to our direct business model, our constant focus on the customer experience and our team's execution discipline. During the period, we saw strong results from our marketing efforts and took advantage of incremental marketing opportunities in online channels." Strauss added, "We are also pleased to announce that we recently added our four millionth customer to our database."
