"Alexa, buy me something from Whole Foods."
Alexa: "Buying Whole Foods."
From PIX 11:
Amazon is making a big bet on physical stores and the business of food.
The online retail giant announced Friday that is buying organic grocery chain Whole Foods for $13.7 billion in cash. The deal values Whole Foods at $42 a share, 27% higher than where the stock was trading Thursday.
Amazon said Whole Foods stores will continue operating under that name as a separate unit of the company. Whole Foods CEO John Mackey will stay on to lead Whole Foods, which will keep its headquarters in Austin, Texas.
Twitter's reactions though were what really drew my attention - some of these tweets are just hilarious!
