Real estate will obviously play a big part with Amazon acquiring Whole Foods. There are over 440 Whole Foods stores and they tend to be located in wealthy areas. Amazon will likely bring its e-grocer model to these stores, using them for delivery and distribution. Some have suggested Whole Foods will implement a drive-through pick-up lane. Value of Whole Foods real estate is expected to increase as changes evolve with Whole Foods and Amazon's merging of worlds.
