Yes! Apples, a fresh, consumer-first apple brand, has launched an online store where consumers can buy its apples to be shipped directly to their door.
“Yes! Apples continues to build its reach to consumers across the country as it brings New York-grown apples coast to coast,” said Kaari Stannard, chief executive officer, Yes! Apples. “Consumers today are omnichannel shoppers. They shop in-store and online so we need to meet them where they are. We want to bring awareness of not only high-quality existing varieties but also new varieties.”
Consumers can now purchase specialty varieties that don’t have widespread distribution directly from Yes! Apples. Initial offerings include the Rave, SweeTango, Honeycrisp, Gala and SnapDragon varieties. More varieties will be added as they become available.
