Amazon has completed its $13.7 billion takeover of organic grocer Whole Foods, and the e-commerce giant is wasting no time putting its stamp on the company. Prices were lowered; Whole Foods brands will soon be on Amazon’s site; and Amazon’s Prime members could soon get discounts at Whole Foods. The deal could also spur changes in the wider grocery industry. (AP Photo/Joseph Pisani)
