Amazon’s Next Brick-and-Mortar Move

We can all agree that Amazon has been a trigger in the evolution of the retail landscape. This infographic offers a quick look at Amazon’s acquisitions. We think Amazon’s purchase of brick-and-mortar Whole Foods will not be its only foray into physical stores. It was a strategic move that gives them an advantage into a segment which they can service online and offline to maximize their purchasing power and economies of scale in a category which everyone on the planet buys from: food. Plus, it strengthens its Amazon Fresh division and investment. We predict one of its upcoming brick-and-mortar moves will be into another must-have category: drug, health, & beauty.
