goPuff and the Digitization of Convenience

While restaurants experiment with ghost kitchens, convenience stores are similarly moving toward off-premises experiences of their own. The current market leader is goPuff, a convenience retailer without a physical presence. The brand delivers goods, ordered through a mobile app, directly to consumers in 500 U.S. cities from micro-fulfillment centers.

Last week, goPuff agreed to purchase BevMo! For $350 million, spurring the national expansion of the Philadelphia-based retailer. What does this move mean for goPuff, competition with brick-and-mortar retailers, and the future of c-stores?
