    I honestly don't see the appeal in Amazon except for when it comes to buying textbooks.

    Clothes and household goods tend to be very expensive at Amazon. I rather go to the Dollar Store, Wal-Mart/Target or Salvation Army any day.

    When it comes to clothes, I prefer to go to Macys or to a small locally owned boutique style shop. I look at quality as well as price.

    Duh, another silly Liberal using incorrect comparison data. Try telling the truth instead of being Bernie Madoff's protege:

    2016 Amazon Revenue: 136 Billion
    2016 Walmart Revenue: 482 Billion

    Amazon's stock price has no basis in reality.

    Either does Tesla which has a market value of 60 Billion and loses $4.72 per share.

    Many lazy millennials would rather sit home and vegetate online rather than interface in person.

    The chart didn't show Barnes & Noble.

    I cannot tell you how many times I've gone to Barnes & Noble and told the Information Desk, "Forget it, I'll get it from amazon. I tried."
