    Default Alice.com?

    Does anyone know what happened to this website? I loved them! They sold
    groceries and other household goods. They came in quite handy to me last
    year when hurricane Sandy struck and my husband couldn't purchase things
    where he was in NY, for various reasons. I was able to send him a package
    of things that he needed from there, as well as various other places. I
    also placed a few orders for other stuff for us, I think as recently as a
    month or two ago. But now? The website seems not to be there. They still
    have a blog listed. They were a fairly new site. I think they first opened
    in 2010. They were great because you could order single items and didn't
    have to get a whole case, plus they offered free shipping with (I think) a
    $49 order.

    Never heard of it, but googled and it sounds like a good web site.
    Let me know when it comes back online and I'll take a look at it. Not
    sure how they can make a profit with no markup, so maybe they're out
    of business. http://afewshortcuts.com/2009/10/what-is-alice-com/

    They lose money on every sale but they make up for it in volume.

    They must have had a great volume. They are in receivership.

    Alice.com, a Madison-area e-commerce retailer that received millions
    from early-stage investors, has filed for receivership, a state court
    proceeding similar to bankruptcy.

    The firm's website was disabled Tuesday afternoon and showed little
    more than a message reading, "For questions regarding previous orders,
    please contact [email protected]."

    Just two years ago, Alice employed 31 people at its Middleton
    headquarters and another 42 at a distribution center in Indianapolis.

    Launched in 2008 by a pair of Internet entrepreneurs who sold a
    previous venture to Microsoft for a reported $50 million, Alice built
    its business on a model that let manufacturers sell such ordinary
    household goods as detergent and toilet paper directly to consumers.
    Alice sought to profit by selling customer information to
    manufacturers, placing coupons with consumers and gaining fees from
    distributing free samples.

    The company won favor with investors, who put some $18 million into
    Alice over a few years. One of the more recent infusions came in early
    2012, when a group from Spain invested $3.6 million after Alice had
    merged with a Spanish company called Koto.com.

    The receivership, which is going forward in Dane County, actually
    comprises two cases one for Alice and another for its holding
    company.

    In its petition for receivership, Alice lists $1.4 million in assets
    mostly inventory and $7.6 million in liabilities. The great majority
    of the debt, $6.7 million, is owed to the holding company, according
    to the document.

    The holding company's petition lists assets of $7.3 million, including
    the $6.7 million owed by Alice, and $5.8 million in debt. The holding
    company says, however, that the fair value of its assets falls short
    of its liabilities.

    Milwaukee attorney Michael S. Polsky has been appointed receiver.

    Yeah. I was afraid that they might have gone out of business. But usually
    when that happens, a search will turn up something. But it didn't.

    Oh wow! I hope that the people with outstanding orders can get their money
    back! I lost a good chunk of change a few years ago. I placed an order at
    a food allergy website and when the food never arrived, I posted something
    about it online. That's when the owner contacted me. She said what
    happened was that some people came in, shut down her business and locked the
    doors. She had no access to her inventory or computers. I am sure I am
    leaving out some particulars here but the story she told me didn't sound all
    there. Not sure who these people were who did this but she said that the
    creditors too it all.

    Then a few years later, she attempted to reopen and also attempted to get me
    to be a customer again. I refused. Had I been her, I would have asked me
    how much money I had lost to her before and would have made up an order of
    foods of my choice and sent them to me for free. But she didn't. Then a
    mere two months after she put the website up, she took it down again with a
    disclaimer that apparently the need for such a shop was no longer. Probably
    true now with the better labeling laws. A lot of what she was selling could
    be bought elsewhere. She did have her own line of gluten free baking mixes
    and that's usually what I bought.

    A simple search DOES bring it up. All you have to do is type
    "alice.com" into Google.

    Is your computer that ****ed up that it doesn't show that?

    I don't use Google, I do use dogpile.com,
    and IT found the company blog, which is still
    working (company.alice.com).

    They got $3.6 mil in founding Jan 2012, and
    apparently lost all that and more.

    Wow. Sad. I did find stuff on Google. The only thing Swagbucks brought up
    was the blog.

    Me too, but that was before everyone else started searching and you
    had answers about them being in receivership when I returned to the
    thread, so I lost interest at that point.

    I often find that I can use a search term, get nothing - post about it
    here, get flamed by you know who, then retry later using the same
    search term that got me nowhere before and get valid hits... probably
    because so many other people are searching too.
