Why Amazon and Walmart May Dominate US Retail

Last week, I came across this interesting tweet.

I tweeted over this tweet with the caption Amazon’s Wake, and it ended up being a pretty popular tweet. I did get some feedback as some observers wanted to make points that not all of these retailers failed because of Amazon. Toy’s R Us was a prime example since it seems a private equity group is more the cause of their troubles, however, whether you can draw a direct cause and effect of Amazon, there is no question these retailers and more are seeing more of their business move online.
