Here’s the top stories that have hit our desk today:
- DoorDash Will Be 3rd-Largest E-Commerce Banner After Amazon, Walmart. A must read. Analysts also predict Instacart and Uber will surpass Target’s digital business in GMV sales by 2025.
- Kroger is hiring 10,000 workers in hybrid job fair. This feels more like a right-sizing now that stores are opening back up. Kroger running this in both a physical and digital approach shows the lasting change the pandemic could leave.
- Amazon loses ‘most valuable brand’ designation to Apple. Apple is a luxury brand, Amazon is not. It doesn’t surprise us that Apple took the top spot.
- Websites and apps around the world go dark. Good news, it wasn’t another cyberattack. Bad news, it was an internal blunder by Fastly, a content delivery network. I’d hate to be the guy on call for that one.
