CFIB members more worried about Amazon: survey

A survey by the Canadian Federation of Independent Business has found members are increasingly concerned about holding their own against big e-retail players like Amazon. Just under half of business owners surveyed in January agreed or strongly disagreed that it’s tough to compete against these players. Two-thirds said they had noticed an increased presence on the part of online giants like Amazon.

The report comes after the U.S. Federal Trade Commission filed suit against Amazon in September. Among other allegations, the agency says Amazon penalizes third-party sellers for offering lower prices for the same products on other platforms.
