Just like big box stores, Amazon has been taking business away from local independent retailers for years. This holiday season, they’ve become particularly brazen with one particular promotion.
By now you’ve probably heard about Amazon’s new app that pays your customer $5 to scan a barcode in your store, then walk out empty handed and buy the product through Amazon instead.
