Amazon-Whole Foods: A year later, what has changed?

Walmart, with help from partners such as Doordash, says its grocery delivery program will cover more than 40% of U.S. households by year’s end. It is also set to nearly double the number of stores that offer online grocery pickup services. Kroger, meanwhile, now offers its ClickList pickup program from more than 1,000 stores and is expanding its delivery partnership with Instacart. It also agreed to take a stake in British online grocer Ocado Group and is working with that company to identify sites for automated warehouse facilities that make use of its technology.
