Further to “The Unbelievable” portion of our recent E-News (see Chart 1 below) for Big Box retailers:
To further help “connect the dots” to the “Now Believable” and the soon-to-be “Necessity” (see Chart 2 - example for Best Buy), we believe this new article quoting Marc Andreessen, co-founder of Mosaic and Netscape, will be of interest. (See Article Here)
“These two initiatives could allow Amazon to topple (or at least maim) traditional retail.
“Retail guys are going to go out of business and ecommerce will become the place everyone buys. You are not going to have a choice,” Marc Andreessen told PandoDaily in January.
“We’re still pre-death of retail, and we’re already seeing a huge wave of growth. The best in class are going to get better and better. We view this as a long term opportunity.”
“If Amazon will sell you the same groceries as Walmart and deliver them straight to your doorstep the same day you order them, why make the trip to the labyrinthine monument to capitalism at all?”
We look forward to discussing this with you when you and your executive team are ready for the Unbelievable to become your Necessity.
