Editor’s Corner: Fighting the Amazon Threat


Our Market Watch feature this month was inspired by recent news reports that Amazon may be getting into the click-and-collect grocery game, expanding their e-commerce grocery reach beyond the current AmazonFresh home delivery program. Though the company has neither confirmed nor denied such plans, it made us pay closer attention. If Amazon is thinking of getting into click-and-collect, it must be ready to explode, right?

Well, as you’ll read in the feature starting on page 6, e-commerce grocery is steadily growing, but it’s not a lost cause for traditional retailers. Brick and mortar retailers still have the majority of the market share by far—and there’s a lot they can do to keep it that way.

You won’t want to miss the other articles in this issue, either. With expert insights on how nimble merchandising teams help retailers adapt to a changing landscape, game day selling tips for Sales Advisors and more, there’s a little something for everyone.

All the best,
