10% of people are in the retail trade, but Gruber thinks they should all die off to 'reduce his friction'. Typical Whole Foods Democrat.

Shrinkage will kill them.

Unfortunately for Amazon, people lower down on the food chain aren't as honest and upright as they would like to believe.

I don't think you can even get into the store without "checking in" on your phone and anything you take will be charged to you.

The Applestore's had this running for a while.

I remember picking up an item I wanted, launched the store app, scanned the UPC with the iPhone's camera, paid, and walked out.

No longer available for _some reason_.

Thanks Gruber.

You can still do that at the Apple Store. Maybe yours is in a high-crime area?

Here in the Bay Area people just drive cars through the front glass to make off with things.
