I've been so distracted with various things (roof repair, things zapped by lightning strike incl. DSL modem, RV repairs, buying trip, etc.) that I had completely forgotten about Prime Day  :-[

Hmm.. having clickable links and such is an interesting aspect of it that I wasn't aware of and other aspects I hadnt considered, such as ad copy on the exterior of the mailpiece to get the consumer's attention when viewing the scanned piece.  I don't do direct mailings, though, so hadn't really thought about it.  Still, very interesting.

Thanks.  One aspect that seems to be overlooked, is that Amazon retail doesn't care if they are making a profit. All they care about is the stock price, which has many other aspects tied to it than just the profits of their retail site.  Heck, look at how long they sold diapers at a loss just to hurt Diapers.com, so that they could then buy them on the cheap.

^ ha!  Aint that the truth

I can't help but think next thing is that Amazon will be buying one of the big chain liquor stores such as Total Wine & More or Spec's.  Speaking of - I was floored when went into a Total Wine & More in New Mexico. We don't have any stores in my state that truly compare.  There's one shop in Tulsa that is close, but. . . 

The reasons? There's a few of them.

For starters, my state doesn't allow liquor stores to be owned by out of state businesses (must be a resident of the state for at least 10 yrs) and you can only own two locations.  Somehow Costco worked around that and opened a liquor store in Tulsa, but. . .   Our limits do well to protect local mom and pop shops, but it also results in stores that are small and that don't have a big selection, since most mom & pop shops don't have the funding for a huge store nor for the inventory.

That's not the only reason, though, it's also because of the distributors in my state.  There are only 6 companies that are allowed to sell wholesale, and they mostly carry the cheap brands at inflated prices or they carry a very limited selection of products.

And, of course, liquor retailers aren't currently allowed to ship liquor into the state, though that's about to change, but will still be heavily restricted with them having to buy expensive permits every year before they can ship into the state and from my understanding will only allow the shipping of wine.

Welcome. Hear ya. I've been needing to do updates myself. Going to change hosts in the next couple of days so that I can update to the newest security requirements. Switching over to Magemojo. They're PCI compliant and focus on hosting magento stores.
