Online grocery sales increased 8% last year as the industry gains acceptance in metropolitan areas and is pegged to see sales grow to as much as $9.4B by 2017. The trend is far from favorable for brick-and-mortar grocery stores (KR, SVU, SWY) still reeling from increased competition from dollar stores and Wal-Mart. What to watch: As delivery services such as Peapod and Fresh Direct expand, will Whole Foods Market (WFM) stand pat?
