Amazon Restaurant Closing Soon Due To High Competition
Andrew Parker - June 16, 2019


By Shel Silverstein

Lester was given a magic wish
By the goblin who lives in the banyan tree,
And with his wish he wished for two more wishes-
So now instead of just one wish, he cleverly had three.
And with each one of these
He simply wished for three more wishes,
Which gave him three old wishes, plus nine new.
And with each of these twelve
He slyly wished for three more wishes,
Which added up to forty-six -- or is it fifty-two?
Well anyway, he used each wish
To wish for wishes 'til he had
Five billion, seven million, eighteen thousand thirty-four.
And then he spread them on the ground
And clapped his hands and danced around
And skipped and sang, and then sat down
And wished for more.
And more...and more...they multiplied
While other people smiled and cried
And loved and reached and touched and felt.
Lester sat amid his wealth
Stacked mountain-high like stacks of gold,
Sat and counted -- and grew old.
And then one Thursday night they found him
Dead -- with his wishes piled around him.
And they counted the lot and found that not
A single one was missing.
All shiny and new -- here, take a few
And think of Lester as you do.
In a world of apples and kisses and shoes
He wasted his wishes on wishing.

Word on the street, Amazon is officially shutting down their restaurant delivery service on June 24th, 2019. This closing is due to the many other food service company’s that have taken over the country. With the high demand consumers have to click, order and eat, Amazon decided that they need to focus on their partner company Whole Foods instead of being the underdog in food delivery services.


Just alone, Uber, Doordash and Grubhub make up majority of the restaurant delivery business. In today’s society, consumers are technologically savvy preventing them from wanting to physically leave their residence to go grab a bite to eat. This dramatic change in restaurant service has not only caused Amazon to make these shifts in the company but has effected many restaurants as well.


The lack of wanting to go experience a fine dining restaurant has caused many restaurants to go out of business or change their ways. Our society see’s no wrong in their “lazy” ways but in the long run the results will show tremendously.


Amazon, being an empire in itself, has ensured that the majority of its employees were placed in other areas of the company or have found jobs to suite them. This alone proves the high credibility and reputation Amazon has is completely factual.


Amazon Restaurant had a great run in the restaurant delivery service business but it is time for them to say goodbye. Ensure to get your last order in at your favorite restaurant before closing day, or else you may have to physically go to the restaurant yourself.
