In just two decades, founder and CEO Jeff Bezos has transformed from a Honda-driving online salesman of books to the world's richest man. He sits atop one of the most influential American companies at the center of an activity that makes up two-thirds of the U.S. Close to two-thirds of Americans now say they've bought something on Amazon, according to a new NPR/Marist poll. That is 92 percent of America's online shoppers — which is to say, almost all of them.
More than 40 percent say they buy something on Amazon once a month or more often. In fact, when people shop online, they're most likely to start on Amazon. E-commerce has been in hypergrowth mode since it started. Still, only about a 10th of all our shopping dollars are spent over the Internet. And in the overall retail universe, Amazon does trail far behind Walmart in annual sales. "We can either go to Amazon on our own, at 9 o'clock at night, and have (our order) there in two days," said Melanie Hinchey, a mother of two who works at a tech company in Milwaukee. "Or we could wait until the weekend, and get everybody in the car, go out shopping and hopefully we find what we want." The convenience that Hinchey talks about appears to be habit-forming. No wonder Amazon today is worth over $800 billion — the world's second-most-valued company, behind Apple.
Amazon employs more than half a million workers worldwide. (Note: Amazon is one of NPR's financial sponsors.) Amazon has slayed so many competitors that companies shiver when it enters into a new business. Even a whiff of such a move can rattle share prices of mighty corporations. It makes movies and TV shows, has a massive cloud data-storage business where it keeps information from the government and numerous other companies, runs the Whole Foods grocery chain, offers people Internet-connected door locks, and makes the popular Alexa smart speaker.

Eldorado Stone enhances distribution services and efficiency with relocation of facility in Washington. 7, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Eldorado Stone LLC, part of Boral, announced today that it will be relocating its distribution facility in Royal City, Washington , to Tacoma . The relocation will help increase the speed and efficiency with which the company provides product to its customers and is expected to take place in mid-November. As a result of the relocation, the business will cease manufacturing at the Royal City facility. The company is taking steps to retain its employees by offering transfer opportunities within other company facilities, including the one in Tacoma . "The demand for architectural stone veneer continues to rise, making it more important than ever for us to evaluate our capabilities and ensure that we're positioned to provide high quality products swiftly and efficiently," said Victoria Sherwood , President of Boral, Stone Division.
"We appreciate the craftsmanship and expertise of the people who have worked with us in this facility and we hope to retain them in other positions within the organization." Royal City is located between Seattle and Spokane in eastern Washington , while Tacoma is more centrally located and provides ready access to distribution corridors. The Royal City location, which includes 15 acres with a 60,000-square-foot plant, employs approximately 50 full-time and 53 temporary workers. 3997 Road 136 Sw, Royal City, Washington 99357 (509) 346-2175.

The Food Bin and Herb Room are a local Santa Cruz "natural foods" store and herb/vitamin/aromatherapy supply store, respectively.
The Food Bin stocks an impressive selection of organic produce and other mostly "natural" foods for its size, while the Herb Room next door sells just about every type of herb imaginable, along with books, tinctures, essential oils and body products. Though rather small, both stores attract attention via the large sign out front which often contains kooky or inspiring phrases. The stores are open later than the other natural foods stores in town, making the Food Bin in particular a popular choice with the late-night crowd. They have an extensive bulk selection and an unmatched shopping atmosphere. There's a pleasant patio/seating area adjacent to the bike parking.
