Amazon Never Sleeps: Sets Sights On “The Poor Market”

And I thought I’d seen everything: Amazon CamperForce.


Click = big

Same-day update: A video!

Field of Vision – CamperForce

And here’s something you don’t know yet: WSJ: Amazon to open new US grocery chain separate from Whole Foods

Not the article. What it means. Amazon is gunning for Dollar General/Family Dollar.

Why?

This: Dollar Stores Planning for Permanent American Underclass, Sell More Groceries Than Whole Foods

There are nearly 30,000 dollar stores nationwide, more than Starbucks and Walmart combined, and up from 20,000 in 2011. Dollar General and Dollar Tree are planning 20,000 more. Dollar General is opening four stores a day, a rate the company is expected to maintain through 2019.

Boldfaced emphasis added by me.

I wonder if Amazon tried to buy them and was rebuffed? If you can’t join them, beat them.

And if you think Dollar General/Family Dollar is a joke, I have two Dollar General stores I can get to easily and four Family Dollar stores. And a fifth one is being built on the same block as a Dollar General!

    Dollar stores just sell crap stuff. It doesn’t last and generally a waste of money.

    I picture the Amazon grocery stores as more of a competitor to Aldi’s.
