retail news in context, analysis with attitude

• The Puget Sound Business Journal reports that Amazon seems to be making progress on the opening of Amazon Fresh Pickup locations in both the Ballard and Sodo neighborhoods, with construction well underway and the city approving signs for both locations.

The story notes that these are very different locations. Ballard actually has a lot of grocery options, including Fred Meyer, Trader Joe's and a planned New Seasons, while Sodo does not have as many supermarkets.

Amazon has not said when the two locations will open.
