And I thought I’d seen everything: Amazon CamperForce.
Same-day update: A video!
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.
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!
