Amazon Retail Threat

 

Mr Banducci was pressed by the ABC on Amazon’s disruptive potential for traditional retailers as the online giant prepares to unleash in Australia later this year.”Amazon is obviously a very material potential competitor in this space,” Mr Banducci said.”Customers are looking for a lot more convenience in the way they shop. Amazon and many others are of course going to provide that convenience if we don’t.”Mr Banducci urged against complacency in relation to Amazon as he unveiled a full-year profit of $1.5 billion — a big bounce back after last year’s loss of $1.2 billion due to write-downs of the failed Masters hardware chain.One of the Woolworths businesses most exposed to online competitors such as Amazon is the Big W chain, which made a loss before tax of $150.5 million.
