Without notice to customers preparing for their Thanksgiving shopping, Louisville, Colo.-based grocery delivery Door to Door Organics closed operations, effective immediately.
In a blog post the company shared on its Facebook page, the company, which was founded in 1997 as a produce box delivery company, said it was “very mindful” of the timing of its announcement, and apologized for pulling the plug just before Thanksgiving.
“In the end it’s hard to point to one thing that led us to this conclusion,” the post said. “Ultimately timing of recent events in our industry and the impact that had on our funding prospects were not in our favor with the ultimate result being no path forward.”
The company merged with Relay Foods in 2016, which expanded services to 63 markets in 18 states. In January, Relay Foods retired its name and started operating as Door to Door Organics.
At the time of the merger, the companies announced $10 million in equity financing from The Arlon Group and “existing Relay Foods stockholders,” according to media reports.
