Totally fun places to work, no annoying customer interaction!
Just a very quick update to earlier posts this week about supporting local businesses — to continue to have choices in the marketplace.
Massive Amazonian Corporation wants to take your local retailers down.
The company is giving up its fight over states collecting sales taxes because of plans in the works to put massive distribution centers in major US cities — with the goal to get products delivered to you same day.
Some think that in a couple of years, next-day service will be the default shipping method for most purchases. If Amazon can accomplish this, will it “permanently hose” the local retailer? It would mean Amazon would have to carry a LOT of stuff in each warehouse. Warehouses as far as the eye can see! Whoo-hoo sounds great.
