Amazon’s Secret Plan to Sell You Everything!

Forget your local grocery store. Grocers in Manhattan have been in decline for years without competition from Amazon. If that warehouse in New Jersey really is going to be home to AmazonFresh, it's simply going to end those puny, low-margin grocery chains' misery. It marks the beginning of the end of shopping as the whole world knows it; malls will collapse, chains will disappear. "Running errands" will no longer mean jumping from the grocery store to the pharmacy and then to the mall.

Have I mentioned lately that we live in the era of exponential trend failures?

I think "hanging out" and "being seen" account for a good deal of mall traffic.
