COMPANY DESCRIPTION

Amazon.com began as Earth's biggest bookstore, but has become Earth's biggest everything store. Its website still offers millions of books, as well as other media, home furnishings, clothing, pet supplies, office products, and hundreds of other product categories (with items often ordered and delivered the same day). The company is also the dominant cloud services provider, an influential entertainment company through its video operations (it produced 2017 Oscar-nominated Manchester-by-the-Sea), a force to be reckoned with in grocery with its ownership of natural foods chain Whole Foods, and a leader in digital personal assistant devices with Alexa and its Echo product line.
