Amazon provide a fantastic service with next day delivery to your door at very competitive prices. Time for High Streets to be re-developed into affordable housing for our growing population. 
In fact the out of town retail parks are also suffering now from online convenience. As you say , converting town centres into housing and social/ eating / drinking and leisure facilities seems the best way forward

All Wales games for this tournament to be shown live on S4C. They'll be moaning next that there's no English language option.

Hence competition is wiped out, Bezos will one day become the first trillionaire if he doesnt divorce every year, meanwhile the high street is wiped out and the tax paid to the treasury for our public services will continue to diminish 


Exactly Roy

Accept for many reasons online is the option people will choose over a physical shop but when the case (as I just did buying a new shaver) I suggest try the site of a company (in this case Boots) who pay proper corporation tax. You might even find the price is the same or cheaper. Linked to what Roy says people now might always assume Amazon is cheaper for everything but that is not the case - they have just succeeded in getting people to think like that. In this case, having just checked what it would be on Amazon, I'm paying exactly the same price and free delivery from Boots to my house as well.

+ Anyhows - great to read about our matches being on S4C!!! sorted!

You have just identified Amazon's key strategic aim there.

45% of all on line product searches start at Amazon...they work on that as being their main KPI to grow.

Amazon attract plenty of variable press covering, but they have been an employment godsend in these challenging times.
Announced today another 100k full time workers being taken on in North America for example.

That's what I'll be watching - Amazon can go and... you can fill in the rest.

Diolch, S4C!
