      View All  


Amazon AMZNOnline retail giant (NASDAQ:AMZN) is having another good year. AMZN stock is up nearly 34% year to date. As any school kid can tell you, a big portion of back-to-school shopping these days is done on the internet, and that means it’s a busy time of year at Amazon.

As one who shops frequently for all kinds of items, I know that if something is hard to find, i.e. if I can’t get at a local store, I will check to see if I can get it via Amazon. Inevitably, I find what I’m looking for with only a few clicks of the mouse. This phenomenon has changed the face of retailing forever, and back-to-school shopping is no exception.
