Miller’s Monday Morning Message
presented by ACM Consulting Inc.
Andrew Miller on operational excellence, strategy, life balance and everything in between
Toronto – November 4, 2013
Just when you thought the retail and grocery store landscape in Canada couldn’t get any more complicated, Amazon has announced it will start offering groceries online. Loblaws has recently agreed to purchase Shoppers Drug Mart. Sobeys has acquired Safeway Foods. Walmart is constantly growing it’s assortment of grocery items. Target is another player to be reckoned with. And now Amazon. Not to mention Metro and other grocery store chains. Who knew Canadians were so popular?
Here are some questions to consider as Amazon enters the marketplace:
“Amazon is arguably the greatest supply chain company in the world ,” says Andrew Miller, president of ACM Consulting. “So we know they can offer fast and reliable delivery. The question is whether enough Canadian shoppers value the online experience enough to forego their weekly trip to the supermarket.”
