WE WILL SHOW YOU HOW!!!!
Strategy in Action
Oyster Creek Mushroom Company of Damariscotta, Maine shows how e-Commerce can serve specialty food niche markets. The web site explains that the company grows “the very best” Shiitake Mushrooms, as well as a variety of fresh wild mushrooms, and offers dried mushrooms, mushroom powders, flavored mushroom oils, and gift boxes. The site also tells the owners’ personal story, educates customers about wild mushrooms, offers recipes, and allows customers to purchase online.

Strategy in Action
One of the most interesting rural e-Commerce Web sites is www.IndianVillage.com, an online shopping mall with many links to Indian related web sites such as Durango Silver Company that offers turquoise jewelry and cabochons through its eBay store. Other IndianVillage.com Web site links displays American Indian artisans offering pottery, basketry, textiles, beadwork and Indian jewelry.
