But why?
Amazon are successful because they sell essentially everything.
An online store can sell as many products as they want, and doesn't have the overhead of running retail outlets.
By moving into stores, they suddenly have a very limited amount of stock available, lose their major advantage and pick up a significant disadvantage.
Why?
Retail stores are failing because they are being beaten by companies like Amazon.
Why would the winners want to become the losers?
