So now that the era of Walmart is over, why aren't you opening a mom-and-pop store? Don't you want to fulfill your dream of being a small businessman?

yeah.. lets open up a mom and pop store so we can get fucked whenever amazon opens up micro-storage units across the country and you get all of your groceries and shit shipped to you on the same day by a delivery truck or drone.

smfh..

i don't think groceries, aside from maybe prepackaged products, will ever be delivered. people like to inspect their produce firsthand to make sure it's not damaged or rotten

Walmart is just reacting to the news from China. There are no new factories being opened and production is grinding to a halt. Look at their export data. Walmart can't supply all their stores so they're closing the ones that are a liability in the company books. They closed those stores as soon China took a shit. Which should tell you that Walmart was expecting this for years.

People liked to inspect clothing and shoes before buying them, too. Then the internet happened.

Because rent is insane.

Seriously, call the telephone numbers posted on those vacant storefronts sometime. If nothing else, you'll learn why they're frequently vacant and for long periods at a time.

stfu. if people were as willing to buy food online as they are with clothes then they would be doing it already

>>1060367
fuck wal-mart

If amazon offered it and had quality control with free returns. You bet your ass people will switch to it.
>>
>>1060628
People are willing, but it's a logistical nightmare to deliver perishable goods for a decent price.

That said, in the terms of hard problems Amazon is trying to solve, this one probably isn't so bad and it is only a matter of time until you will never have to go outside again.
