Today is a significant milestone in the evolution of the Amazon brand.
Our offer to purchase Whole Foods will finally consolidate the largest online and off-line retailers where consumers end up spending way more than they intended.
I actually didn’t even mean to buy Whole Foods but after downing a few too many boilermakers at the Echo mixer last night, I accidentally clicked BUY IT NOW instead of just putting the grocery chain in my cart for future consideration.

Oh well, you know what they say — you can’t log off Amazon without spending $13.7 billion.
So true!

Further details about the merger will be forthcoming, but I wanted to call out a few major points before we have to go silent and get this approved by regulators.

• Our corporate cultures are perfectly aligned.
The New York Times revealed that every Amazon employee has cried at their desk, and I personally made a Whole Foods employee cry when they couldn’t correctly identify their process for ensuring single-source coffee beans throughout the roasting process.
It was an uncomfortable 38 minutes for both of us, but I think an experience so many of you can relate to.

Improved Echo functionality.
Whole Foods has maintained a laser-like focus on organic foods and sustainable facilities and I’m excited to bring that same vision to Echo.
Starting next week, when customers ask their Echo to order non-organic food products they’ll receive a 12-minute lecture on the benefits of organic and local-sourced products while our top-notch product matching software will send them the closest available organic item.
Users on our website will find the “Customers Also Bought…” section replacing unhealthy items with notes such as, “Cookies That Went Straight to Their Thighs” and “Beef Produced By Clear-Cutting Rainforest.” Needless to say, those products will not be available for purchase.

• Drone changes.
All Amazon drone teams will immediately switch to bio-fuels rather than battery packs.

• Senior leadership.
Once the acquisition is complete, John Mackey will take a new position as Financial Analyst and Social Media Community Outreach for the Washington Post.

• Location changes
Since Whole Foods is headquartered in Austin, Texas, I’ve asked EM to build the first hyperloop route between our offices here in Seattle and the Blue Bubble of Texas.
All Amazon/Whole Foods employees will office in Austin for the one week of good weather they have in late February, and in Seattle for the one week of sunshine we have in August (or May… or October… or whenever).
The remaining 50 weeks of the year are up to you.
Because I believe all Amazon employees should be free to cry at their desk no matter where that desk is located.

• Product expansions.
Amazon will soon carry all of the 365-branded products Whole Foods has developed and all Whole Foods stores will be adding aisles for garden equipment, household electronics, sportswear, handbags, pet supplies, golf clubs, video games, plumbing supplies, luggage, headphones, and climbing gear. To start.

• Cruelty free.
We will be adopting Whole Foods policy of only purchasing products that are certified cruelty free.
Please note this does not apply to any software we develop ourselves.

I am beyond excited by the possibilities of this merger moving forward and I hope the team feels the same.
The combination of our two companies will account for over 85% of all hipster purchases in the United States. I’m looking forward to capturing the remaining 15%.

Now, I need your daily status updates and you aren’t excused for being late from reading this.
