Foodmart has recently developed an online ordering service

Customer Question

Foodmart has recently developed an online ordering service for home delivery within a 10-mile radius of each store. To use the service, Foodmart requires customers to agree to terms and conditions of a contract when first entering an online order. The contract specifies that advertised sales prices do not apply to online purchases, and orders are limited to inventory on hand at the nearest store. Todd sees a Foodmart newspaper advertisement for a chocolate sauce that is discontinued at a reduced price. The sauce is a key ingredient in a special cake recipe he uses in his catering business. Todd attempts to make an online purchase of all the remaining sauce at the store nearest to him. The store advises it has sold out, even though it has 10 cases in inventory. Todd requests that the store obtain the chocolate sauce from two other stores within the 10-mile radius. Foodmart refuses, citing the contract. Todd sues, claiming the contract is not effective and he should receive all available chocolate sauce from all three stores at the sales price, or he should receive damages equal to the amount of money he would have made from selling cakes made with the chocolate sauce. Who wins? Analyze the contractual issues unique to e-commerce
