It seems that every few months, I read something about Amazon venturing into this or that? I think the latest was their own branded supermarkets?
A long time ago I read that it had been predicted that, in the future, their will be only a handful of companies running every business out there. I wonder if that prediction is coming to fruition?
Wal-Mart / Toys - R - Us / Home Depot, etc., started the killing fields for the mom and pop store. Amazon is in the course of totally annihilating them. ( The mom and pop store owners can, of course, close the brick and mortar entity and sell their wares on Amazon, right? :>) )
