There is no doubt whatsoever that these are super powers in the landscape of retailers. And it leaves no doubt whatsoever that they are trying to outdo each other all the way to the top.
The two super brands have a massive line of products each. They each have a great slice of the market-share pie.
Let’s break it down though –
When it comes to products that they offer, they both have an expansive list.
Walmart has a very impressive line of brick and mortar stores. Amazon is strong on ecommerce with some physical stores as well. Now that some murmurs and rumblings emerge about Amazon, Walmart revamps its website, giving it a very youthful look and feel and, dare I say, takes it along Amazonian lines?
Could it be that Walmart is out to woo the disgruntled customers who used to shop on Amazon?
At one time, it was only Amazon’s warehouse workers who complained about the hours and the work conditions. Now customers are starting to complain about the ‘junk’ that is sold on Amazon! And when AmazonBasics simply copies best-selling products and offers them at a lower price, the sellers are not too happy either.
Despite all of this, at the end of the day, it’s all about the money, honey.
And Walmart seems to be positioning itself at the sweet spot when it comes to price.
Makes one wonder – is this the beginning of the end for Amazon?
