While retail stores are experiencing significant business problems due to the pandemic, increased online orders have given Amazon the courage to take the steps it has planned for a long time.
Order without leaving home
Amazon has opened a store that only accepts online orders for the grocery chain Whole Foods markets it has bought in the past years.
The new store, which is actually a kind of “local warehouse”, will not physically accept customers and will serve customers home by creating orders that come online.
The market that will serve the Brooklyn region in New York is also expected to attract great interest. It is predicted that Amazon will open online stores for other cities and regions soon.
