Pete’s Two Cents: The future of grocery

by | Aug 25, 2017

Happy Friday! We’re just a few days away from the Amazon acquisition of Whole Foods being official. Amazon already has big plans for dropping prices, starting with Monday’s deal closing. What’s the future of grocery as we know it?

Even without this deal, Lidl and Aldi have been striking a path across the country. Target and Walmart have been encroaching on grocery’s space for years.

With that in mind, is the expansion of grocery outstripping demand? Here are some of my thoughts on the future of grocery surviving in the Amazon era.
