Walmart's Jet.com to launch own grocery line
Just over a year after Walmart spent more than $3 billion for the fast-growing online retailer Jet.com, it will launch a higher-end grocery line targeting millennials as it tries to contain Amazon.com. Amazon last month closed on its acquisition of Whole Foods, intensifying the competition between Walmart, Target, and other supermarkets as all of them fight to win a bigger slice of the grocery market. Jet.com said Friday the new brand, called Uniquely J, will focus on younger customers in urban areas, offering them select coffee, olive oil, paper towels, and other products. Amazon cut prices almost immediately on a number of items at Whole Foods after it closed on the deal. Walmart has done the same over the past month. (canadiangrocer.com)

Whole Foods private label brand gets boost from Amazon.com
Amazon has sold $1.6 million of Whole Foods’ private label products in the first month since acquiring the national grocery chain. According to news from The Wall Street Journal, this is one of the first infusions of cash the eCommerce giant has delivered to Whole Foods through its website. Amazon completed $500,000 in online grocery sales in the first week after it started offering Whole Foods’ “365 Everyday Value” products, according to One Click Retail eCommerce data. Weekly sales fell to about $300,000 during the next two weeks after the site ran low on some private label products, but rebounded in the fourth week. “This is probably one of the most valuable things they got from Whole Foods,” said Diana Sheehan, director of Retail Insights at the Kantar Retail consultancy.
