retail news in context, analysis with attitude

• Amazon said yesterday that it has extended its Prime restaurant delivery service to Las Vegas, offering "super-fast delivery from more than 100 restaurants and have it delivered to neighborhoods including the Las Vegas Strip, the Arts District, Winchester, Spring Valley, Paradise, and Summerlin, just to name a few."

According to Amazon, "Prime members in Las Vegas can order from participating restaurants, browse menus, track the status of their delivery, and watch as their delivery driver travels from the restaurant to the delivery address in real time. For Prime members placing orders for delivery to the Las Vegas Strip, Amazon Restaurants offers curb-side pick-up for fast service. Once an order is placed, the food will be delivered in one hour or less. Amazon Restaurants offers customers transparent pricing--there are no menu markups."
