    Loblaws stock dropped a lot today on this news.
    Which is weird because neither Whole Foods or Amazon is competition for Loblaws - Amazon is still not a great way for Canadians to get groceries

    Not many grocery items on Amazon here, and these that are on it are generally expensive. Whole Foods was going to open in Calgary and Edmonton last year but they pulled the plug at the last minute due to the oil forecast. They had even built/reno'ed the stores. I wonder if Amazon will open them.

    Alexa... "OK, buying Whole Foods"
