Is Brick & Mortar Really Dying, or Just the Current Merchants?

I have posted many time about the self-inflicted “death” of brick and mortar stores. A quick review of the Retail category will show you many.

Others have written that the demise is inevitable. I have disagreed and further stated that the primary problems are self-inflicted.

If the other writers are correct and I am wrong, what caused Amazon.com to spend $13B to buy a brick and mortar retailer, Whole Foods?
