Ex-Walmart CEO on Amazon considering brick-and-mortar stores

Bill Simon, former Walmart president & CEO, says he’s not surprised by Amazon’s plan to move into brick-and-mortar stores and provides his assessment of retail growth.

Jeff Bezos now has prime access to ice cream. 

The billionaire Amazon founder has a new soft-serve ice cream machine installed in one of his homes, company CVT Soft Serve shared Tuesday in an Instagram post. 

The soft-serve machine is modeled like a mini ice cream truck called CVTeeny offering chocolate, vanilla and twist flavor options. The Los Angeles-based company says Bezos is the first to have the on-demand ice cream machine installed, likely at one of his three Beverly Hills homes, the New York Post first reported. 

"Thank you Jeff Bezos for being our first residential #CVTeeny client," CVT Soft Serve founder Joe Nicchi wrote on Instagram.

"I just did an ice cream delivery to a guy that now has CVT on tap in his house 24/7," Nicchi wrote. "I don’t expect you to believe what I’m about to tell you, but it’s 100% true. I’m still trying to mentally process this," he wrote.
