Is Amazon interested in acquiring a wholesale club chain? Some reports say yes, though right now the story is unconfirmed and may be mostly speculation:
“BJ’s would likely be Amazon’s largest acquisition to date. The company paid $775 million for robotics company Kiva Systems in 2012 and shelled out $1.2 billion for e-commerce company Zappos in 2009.“
If Amazon is interested in taking over BJ’s, this could represent another shot fired in the battle between Walmart and Amazon, with Amazon openly going head-to-head with Walmart in the warehouse club sector.
