The Produce Reporter Week in Review – November 15, 2019

Pamela and Greg discuss how grocery retailers are turning to “dark stores” to ease the congestion of e-commerce fulfillment, Walmart’s dig at gig economy workers like Instacart for grocery, and Amazon’s plans for a brick and mortar grocery in Los Angeles.
