See the latest coverage here:

  • Online grocery shopping accounted for 2% of sales in the sector last year, according to Kantar Retail. Before the Amazon deal announcement, the share was projected to grow to 3% by 2021. Kantar Retail’s online grocery projections quoted in Fox Business
  • “To a certain extent, this does make a lot of sense. Amazon has struggled in food, we know that, if you think about that Whole Foods shopper compared to Amazon, the Whole Foods shopper profile is actually a shopper profile that is very closely aligned with who Amazon wants to reach on an ongoing basis. It definitely … has to be appealing to Amazon.” Director of Retail Insights, Diana Sheehan interviewed by Retail Food Dive
  • “If established retailers like Kroger and Walmart are getting penalized by investors today [in reaction to the Amazon/Whole Foods deal news], then Blue Apron may see declining interest in their IPO,” Director of Retail Insights, Diana Sheehan interviewed by Fox Business
  •  “Only around 9% of households who shopped at Whole Foods in April also shopped at a Wal-Mart. Outside of Texas, there just aren’t that many areas that matter to Wal-Mart’s grocery business that also matter to Whole Foods, still, Amazon could bring Whole Foods to a much larger audience over time” Chief Knowledge Officer,  Bryan Gildenberg, interviewed by Fox Business
