With Amazon’s latest acquisition of Whole Foods and is a threat to brick and mortar stores, what holds for the future of retail.

Michael LaVitola is the CEO and Founder of Foxtrot, a startup that could be thought of as a curated cornerstore with on-demand delivery. It is basically what you imagine your ideal convenience store would look like with an in store cafe and a ton of super cool beer, wine, food, gifts, and basic necessities.

In this episode of Tech in Chicago, we talk about why he started Foxtrot, why they moved away from 0n-demand to retail, their coffee bars, curating products, the future of retail, the impact of Amazon and its acquisitions, how they differentiate themselves, and more.
