Letter to the Editor: Beware of Amazon's effect on small business

With a high level of skepticism, I read the editorial that bringing an Amazon fulfillment center to Tulsa and Oklahoma City is just the greatest thing since, well, maybe the last irrational exuberance job creator ("An Amazon distribution center for Tulsa would be a big deal," May 11).

I can't remember its name. It may have moved elsewhere.

Have we not learned a lesson from the Walmartization of the entire U.S.? How can we now be so pleased about Amazon being local?

Small-town businesses and some small towns are all but gone thanks to Walmart. Everyone with open eyes in those communities realizes that now, but pitchforks have not been readied to run that behemoth out.

I have read that Amazon wants to be the "do-all end-all" supplier of everything to America, even taking on Walmart. Now Tulsa is inviting this 8,000-pound gorilla into our community and celebrating it! According to the exuberant editorial, Tulsa could gain a whopping 2,000 jobs. How impressive that will be once scores of local businesses go belly up remains to be seen.

Has anyone done a valid in-depth, cost-benefit analysis of this? The Tulsa Metro Chamber of Commerce is supposed to represent businesses large and small. What is its analysis? Why haven't local retailers rebelled?

Asset management firm T. Rowe Price disagrees with the Tulsa World in its latest U.S. retail growth projections. E-commerce is devastating all but niche retailers in the U.S. and will continue to do so. Beware, Tulsa!
