Amazon is Opening It’s Own Grocery Stores and We Couldn’t Be More Excited

When you think about Amazon you often associate it with lower prices and free 2-day (or 2 hour) delivery straight to your door.

But now, things are about to get even better for the major retailer and those involved with them because Amazon is Opening It’s Own Grocery Stores and We Couldn’t Be More Excited!

Amazon just announced today that it’ll be opening dozens of supermarkets offering lower prices than Whole Foods.

Say, what?!

This is HUGE.

The company is planning to open dozens of the stores, with the first one opening in Los Angeles as early as the end of this year.

When this news was initially announced today, the stocks of major competitors such as WalmartKrogerTargetBJsCostco and Sprouts all dipped sharply.

Amazon is reportedly also in talks about opening grocery stores in shopping centers based in San Francisco, Seattle, Chicago, Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia.

The new stores would be smaller than the typical grocery store of about 60,000 square feet, according to the Journal, with Amazon seeking about 35,000 square feet of space.

This is some exciting news!

I do love the ability to order and have items delivered to my home but from time to time, I also like to get out and do grocery shopping myself. It’s like a mini-vacation away from the kids.

And I certainly won’t feel bad about saving money while doing it either!
