retail news in context, analysis with attitude

MarketWatch reports Amazon is considering making a bid to acquire Ocado, the UK-based online grocer, which would supplement the online grocery service, Amazon Pantry, that it recently began introducing to the UK.

Neither company has commented on the report.
KC's View:
I have to believe that if and when Amazon starts making these sorts of acquisitions, the companies it buys will have to untethered to the kind of legacy issues that hamper so many companies. I may be wrong about this, but I wonder how many companies like that actually exist.
