It’s hard to know what is coming around the corner in most any economy, especially when a huge competitor named Amazon is doing all it can, as the new kid on the block, to make the biggest splash possible. And even though some retail chains are feeling the pinch in a big way, others are actually putting up a little bit of a fight and biting back, in a big way. Every day, businesses etch out there own loyal customer base to not only stay afloat but thrive, no matter how market trends sway.
As far as the big players go, there are a few businesses that have what it takes to not only take on Amazon but give it a run for its money as well. It kind of looks like a case of follow the leader with the leader being the new kid on the block. But, it may actually turn out to be a scenario where all the kids on the block just learn how to play nicely together. Read this article at stockgumshoe.com to know more about Jess Yastine
For example, Walmart puts up a decent fight by matching the services Amazon offers such as shipping and other perks. Because it already has a similar business model, Ebay can hold its own, as a dance partner, with the big “A”. However, there is a condition to this ability to do the two step with the newest Amazon to the tribe. In this case, Ebay may have a chance to grow to uncharted heights, if it can make a meaningful connection with Google.
The way it works is both simple yet powerful, in its potential. Google has the intelligence, interest and insight into the field of technology, but it lacks the brick and motor components to get things done. And, Ebay has the warehouse network and customer base just waiting to be properly marketed to and converted to retail customers.
There are still other major moves to be made by Grainger. Again, the reasons why are simple and, in this case, they overlap nicely. Grainger has customers in very the stable markets of office services and cleaning supplies. And, just like Ebay it already has warehouses that can be put to multiple uses.
