Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Advice for Jeff Bezos (Amazon on the Mississippi?):

I agree with your insight into the B&N advantage of retail space. Borders could be purchased cheaply giving Amazon an already established, highly synergistic space in all metro areas. Transforming Borders' stores into experiences linked to reading/DVDs/music would be very doable. Country music lovers travel to Branson but I am not sure book lovers would travel to one place for Amazon.

My recent blog dealt with the price war Amazon is waging with Walmart. My bet is on Amazon.

How did those Virgin Music Megastores work out?

I went into them a few times. They were awesome. Now they are gone.

Could an Amazon Megastore open in a few key cities? Maybe. Would people go after the initial Novelty? Who knows.

this advise helps me su much !! thank you!!

Great article, I just read that Bezos founded Amazon.com in 1994 after making a cross country drive from New York to Seattle, writing up the Amazon business plan on the way and setting up the original company in his garage. Incredible story his is.

For now, hotels in the New Orleans-Slidell, Louisiana, have been getting busier, Freitag told Bloomberg. Three days after the Deepwater Horizon explosion, hotels were on average 67% full vs. 53% a year earlier, he said.

And at least one big hotel operator - Marriott International - isn't ready to sound the alarm just yet.
