What are your thoughts on Amazon buying Whole Foods?
The global giant Amazon has just made arrangements to buy Whole Foods. On the surface, this appears to be a perfect match, but underneath, maybe not so much. Whole Foods has always been successful using the "whole foods" model, but Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is already talking about the major changes expected. The cultures of the two seem at odds, and Amazon really has no experience running supermarkets. Do you see trouble in the forecast or immediate and overwhelming success?
You make good points about Amazon's lack of experience with supermarkets. I think the more they allow Whole Foods to retain its current (and profitable) model, the happier customers will be, and the more revenue will generate.
Hopefully Amazon doesn't change things too much or ruin the ideas central to Whole Foods.
