Specialty bulk food chain Bulk Nation has made its online retail debut.
The Tampa, Fla.-based grocer on Wednesday went live with an Internet store, accessible through BulkNationUSA.com.
To mark its e-store’s grand opening, Bulk Nation is offering free shipping within the contiguous United States on purchases exceeding $69.
Through the online store, shoppers can access Bulk Nation’s wide assortment of more than 3,000 specialty bulk food items, including dried fruit, nuts, flour and spices, coffee, tea, ancient grains, local raw honey and candy, as well as vegan, non-GMO and organic products.
"This is a momentous era for our company," president Clay Donato said in a statement. "We are excited to launch this new store and reach customers nationwide who are ready to experience the thrill of shopping hundreds of popular and hard-to-find products."
Bulk Nation opened its first store in 2014 in Brandon, Fla. The company said its bulk shopping concept stands out from other retail grocers by leaving the quantity purchased in the control of the customer, letting them take as little or as much as they want.
Currently, the retailer has nine stores, mainly in west central Florida. Due to open soon is a store in St. Cloud and a second Lakeland location.
