New Startup Offers Everyday Household Goods at $3 a Pop: Figure 1
Brandless products

How would you like a virtual grocery store where most items cost a mere three dollars?

The start-up Brandless is essentially that — an online grocery store where non-perishable, household goods cost three dollars. Whether it is coffee or pancake mix, you pay just three bucks.

As the name suggests, products at Brandless do not carry a brand name so that consumers do not pay what the Brandless founders call the Brand Tax.

“BrandTax is the hidden costs you pay for a national brand,” the Brandless website states. “We’ve been trained to believe these costs increase quality, but they rarely do. We estimate the average person pays at least 40% more for products of comparable quality as ours. And sometimes up to 370% more for beauty products like face cream.”

Brandless has already raised $50 million in funding.
