Amazon’s same day delivery move is proving to be a threat for other retailers

Amazon’s same day delivery move is proving to be a threat for other retailers

E-commerce giant Amazon recently gained a significant edge over its counterpart retailers like Wal-Mart, Kroger, home stop, and other retailers by increasing benefits to its shoppers. Amazon is said to have begun turning out free one-day delivery on more than 10 million products. Amazon stated that they would start delivering groceries within a two-hour window to all prime members. Due to the increase in delivery speed, the stocks have rapidly gone up more than 18% this year.

To abstain from falling back in the competitive race, other retailers are compelled to make up for faster one-day delivery, and this puts pressure on their income, profits, and edges. The new move makes it appear like the company is ok with moderate growth, and also, there is speculation that the Big6 would observe a decrease in their retail sales by 21% in 2020. By providing faster delivery, Amazon is becoming a threat to its retail counterparts, and this is creating adversity in the market. Amazon’s move might seem like the next big thing in the retail sector, but ethically, the retail giant must consider the contending retail enterprises because it questions their sustainability. On the bright side, Amazon has indirectly ignited the zeal in its competitors to up their business plan.
