Peachtree Network Inc. (CDNX:PCH – news), a leading provider of online grocery and food related services, today announced that The Grocery Store of Whistler, B.C. will join the Peachtree Network online grocery shopping network at www.PeachtreeNetwork.com. Beginning in late August, The Grocery Store will provide residents and visitors to Whistler with online grocery shopping and home delivery services.

Rob Sage, general manager of The Grocery Store, said the Peachtree Network’s industry-leading geographic coverage and experience in getting grocers online quickly were key factors in The Grocery Store’s decision to launch online shopping with Peachtree Network. “We view online grocery shopping as a critical part of our growth strategy,” he said. Sage noted that as part of the Peachtree Network, The Grocery Store’s online consumers will benefit from Peachtree Network’s free food information services, including “Ask-the-dietitian,” Quick Purchase Recipe archive and food tips. “You can get important nutritional advice like what can I eat that will help me ski all day and party all night?”

“It goes without saying that Whistler has a tremendous visitor base,” said Jeremy Lee Jonas, president and COO, Peachtree Network. “People come here to be outdoors, to ski and to hike. The last thing they want to do is go grocery shopping. With The Grocery Store, we can provide vacationers and local residents with a convenient means to purchase groceries and prepared meals, giving them more time to enjoy themselves.” Jonas remarked on the deep penetration of Peachtree Network online grocery shopping in British Columbia, which now includes grocers in Whistler, Vancouver, Langley, Sooke, and other Vancouver Island locations.

The Peachtree Network Web site can be visited at www.PeachtreeNetwork.com. There is no fee to register or to use the food information services.
