With the 9th position in the Kantar retailer list, Amazon has made a commendable achievement. According to Kantar Retail Chief Knowledge Officer, Bryan Gildenberg,“Amazon’s rise into the top 10 is symbolic of a shift in U.S. retail towards a genuinely multichannel future. Retailers that command the Top 100 in the future will have an in-depth knowledge of their shoppers across their physical and digital touchpoints, and they’ll all have to fend off Amazon’s game changing economic and operating model.”
