The latest news on everything Amazon  

Amazon now operates approximately 629 brick-and-mortar stores, which includes Amazon Books, Amazon Go, Whole Foods and Treasure Trucks. The Whole Foods acquisition alone added 480 retail locations to the company’s roster in August 2017, but the planned expansion for Amazon Go also points to Amazon’s desire to build a stronger multi-channel strategy. This is particularly important to compete with other mass retailers like Walmart, which operates a whopping 4,761 stores in the U.S., in addition to 597 Sam’s Club locations, and Target, which has 1,839 stores.
