Need help answering this:

'During the 1890s local storekeepers protested rural free delivery by the Post Office because they feared competition from mail-order businesses that offered a greater variety of goods at lower prices. Describe the challenges faced by local storeowners today. How are they similar to the challenges faced by local storekeepers in the 1890s?'

Thanks

    Think about Amazon.They carry much more stock than Walmart, or Target, or anyone could ever stock in a store. So if the consumer wants choice, avoiding the hassel of going to town,....

    So storekeepers are fighting back hard, they want internet purchases to be taxed, and the shipping taxed.

    Shopkeepers often stand against consumers interests. Wait till you start shopping for Autos, insurance, or homes appliances.
