• Yes, traditional bookstores are hurting due to Amazon.

    Amazon has definitely hurt the traditional bookstore, because people can order any book they like online and, if Prime members, have it delivered within a couple of days. They also under-price books, so that brick and mortar stores can't compete (they have more overhead). That being said, technology has also changed the way we read books (such as using e-readers and tablets), and less people are reading, so Amazon isn't completely to blame.

  • Amazon Is A Competitor

    I do not believe Amazon is destroying bookstores. Bookstores do have a strong competitor, making it necessary for them to offer good prices and excellent customer service. Bookstores that have not been able to maintain a high standard have been closing down. Amazon is simply a competitor that many people have come to favor.
