With Whole Foods, Amazon on collision course with Wal-Mart

Delrahim, who has worked on merger deals for over a decade and is viewed by legal observers as less likely to pursue aggressive antitrust enforcement as the previous administration, will be in office to review the Amazon-Whole Foods deal soon.

Last week, at the ATMOsphere America 2017 conference in San Diego, Calif., Accelerate America magazine presented Whole Foods with a best-in-sector award in the food retail category for its myriad natural refrigerant pilots, including 10 stores with transcritical Carbon dioxide systems, one with ammonia/CO2 cascade and one with propane/CO2 cascade, as well as more than 50 stores with at least one propane self-contained case (shecco produces ATMOsphere America and Accelerate America as well as this website). By taking over our Whole Foods grocery carts, Amazon is projecting a future where customers could be telling their Amazon personal assistants, "Alexa, deliver my conflict-free lettuce in five minutes" - and not have that be a joke. Amazon's move aims at the heart of the Bentonville, Arkansas-based retail giant's business - groceries, which account for 56 percent of Wal-Mart's $486 billion in revenue for the year ending January 31.

The grocer will continue to operate stores under the Whole Foods Market brand, and Mackey will remain CEO, the companies said.

"Millions of people love Whole Foods Market because they offer the best natural and organic foods, and they make it fun to eat healthy", Bezos said in Friday's statement. That's because they're probably a member of Amazon Prime, which includes unlimited two-day shipping on over 50 million items. She's skeptical that groceries will go purely online and thinks it'll be more of a hybrid model, where people use a mix of online ordering, restaurants and traditional grocery stores. "The Justice Department and Federal Trade Commission must undertake a review that considers not just the merger's impact on prices but also the impact on jobs and wages", said Rep. Ro Khanna, D-Calif., in a statement to Vice.

Shoppers have plenty of options. Based on his forecasts, Amazon will likely rank as the ninth largest USA grocery retailer this year - though he expects it to assume third place by 2021, behind only Walmart and Kroger.

The grocery industry hasn't been immune - old-line supermarket chain A&P went bankrupt in 2015. He said the firm was only interested in profiting from a forced sale of Whole Foods, rather than pursuing the company's mission of "conscious capitalism".

However, local food marketing and retailing experts tell MiBiz that early stock market reactions are not necessarily the best indicators of long-term challenges.

Maori All Blacks concede defeat to Lions
England are in Argentina but because of time zones, any of their players would probably not arrive in New Zealand before Tuesday. The Lions held a 12-10 lead at the break courtesy of four Halfpenny penalties as they deprived the Maori of fast ball.

Those buildings come with warehouse space, truck loading docks, and experienced logistical workers, making them a flawless nucleus from which to expand grocery delivery, and eventually, maybe even delivery of other staples.

Then there's Amazon Restaurants service, which now delivers prepared meals in a few cities to the homes of Prime members.

Now Bezos has officially marked this new target - food - and placed the sizable bet on Whole Foods and physical retail to capture it. It also is testing same-day fresh and frozen home delivery from 10 of its stores.
