If you think your dealership isn’t conducive to outside pressures, ask the merchants of Smalltown, USA, about that new Walmart going up on the outskirts of the municipality. Walmart has been like the Grimm Reaper to local business whose names have been written over storefronts of Norman Rockwell appearing downtowns, in many cases, for several generations.
If you think Amazon is not having a similar affect, check any local shopping mall. Stop in at Circuit City or Borders Books. Death by Amazon, who is finishing off retail chain stores like Walmart glutted small businesses. Ask your friends who own a residential security businesses if they are seeing Amazon showing up in their markets. They are.
