Ross Stores, Dick’s Sporting Goods and TJ Maxx Expand Footprints
Offshoots with growth plans range from Amazon Go convenience stores to Home Sense.
“When Amazon sneezes, everyone else gets a cold,” is a maxim that more than a few analysts have used to explain declines in the share price of retail stocks.
But news that Amazon plans to open more of its Amazon Go convenience stores is having an opposite, buoyant effect — the Internet giant’s belief in the value of brick-and-mortar is making people remember that locations with street addresses instead of URLs can be valuable assets. Whether it’s off-price stores like Burlington or Ross, or offshoots like the Field & Stream brand of Dick’s Sporting Goods, there’s a realization that the right offering in a high-traffic location will still bring customers in. The web is a powerful outlet but people still actually do like to go somewhere, too.
