business news in context, analysis with attitude


Amazon has opened pop-up stores in four Whole Foods stores around the country, as it further strengthens its ties with the food retailer. The stores essentially offer a wide variety of connected home solutions sold by Amazon, and are similar to those operated in a number of Kohl’s stores around the country.

The Whole Foods featuring the Amazon installations are in Pasadena, California; Davie, Florida; Denver; and Chicago.

Thanks to Patrick Spear, CEO of GMDC, for alerting MNB to these installations and contributing the pictures of the Pasadena store.
