Nueva estrategia de distribución de Amazon

Luego de apostarle durante años a los mega-centros de distribución, la estrategia de Amazon está cambiando.  Ahora que aceptaron cobrar impuestos por estado, la movida es hacia centros cercanos a las grandes ciudades.  ¿Será posible que logren entregar el mismo día en que hacemos el pedido?  Yo creo que sí, lo que podría significar la muerte de muchos negocios pequeños e inclusive representar una amenaza para Walmart:

Physical retailers have long argued that once Amazon plays fairly on taxes, the company wouldn’t look like such a great deal to most consumers. If prices were equal, you’d always go with the “instant gratification” of shopping in the real world. The trouble with that argument is that shopping offline isn’t really “instant”—it takes time to get in the car, go to the store, find what you want, stand in line, and drive back home. Getting something shipped to your house offers gratification that’s even more instant: Order something in the morning and get it later in the day, without doing anything else. Why would you ever shop anywhere else?
