Amazon Plans To Open Cheap Grocery Stores

Amazon plans to open grocery stores in major U.S. cities (San Francisco, Seattle, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Washington D.C.) with a wider, cheaper selection of products than their Whole Foods brand (acquired in 2017).

While Amazon already has a grocery delivery service, Whole Food stores, 4-Star stores, and Amazon Go outlets, it’s not enough. Amazon is strengthening its supermarket strategy and hopes to acquire regional grocery chains. Seems like Amazon wants to dominate both the digital and physical retail world.

Less surprisingly, Amazon discontinued their tap-to-order Dash buttons. Why use a physical button when you can ask Alexa to do it?
