Amazon.com's 14th Holiday Season Is Best Ever

在经济持续低迷的情况下,Amazon的日子却过得不错。能否说明虽然经济危,但对电子商务却是机?又比如在2009年1月5日,英国大连锁零售商woolworths将彻底关闭800多间店面。虽然人们购买能力下降了,但是受影响最大的应该是奢侈品市场。对日用品市场而言,即使有下滑,但幅度也应该不大。于是woolworths空出来的市场份额势必带来新一轮的圈地站。

“We are extremely grateful to our customers,” said Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO of Amazon.com. “We wish everyone happy holidays and the very best for the coming year.”
