The Order : Weekly Aggregator Roundup - The Offline Edition

The Order
Happy Sunday,
here’s a roundup of the last week:

Topic of the week: Amazon's offline world
With cashier-less grocery stores, a physical bookstore and stores to highlight top seller products Amazon has already started tapping into the offline world a few years ago across US locations and select international locations. Now plans for a larger store footprint were revealed… this may also be an increasing gateway for marketplace sellers to leverage.
