War of the Mega Retailers Wholesalers Discussion
Conduct research on Amazon, Costco, Sam’s Club and Walmart.
Familiarize yourself on how each company started, their respective business model, and compare their retail/wholesale operations (pre-Covid 19 and during Covid-19).
How have all four retailers/wholesalers adapted to a Covid-19 economy, CDC protocols, and consumer needs?
Prior to Covid-19, under normal market conditions and a booming economy, with the exception of Amazon, which of the other three would you consider to be the most competitive in its segment? Why?
- In a Covid-19 economy, Amazon’s 100% e-commerce model has dominated in the consumer goods market. Has Walmart made any gains in the e-commerce segment? How can they continue to expand their e-commerce operations in oder to compete against Amazon?
