Mr Clarkson recalls a friend telling him that AmazonFresh didn't stock a brand of orange juice her daughter liked. As a result, she said, she would still need to go to a supermarket for the juice.

Mr. Clarkson, now the chief operating officer at  Varsity Tutors, an online tutoring service, said the comment was an eye-opener.
''We've got to be a lot better at that,'' he thought at the time. ''You're losing a basket as opposed to a unit.'

Seattle has long been receptive to new ideas in retail. R.E.T, Costco Wholesale and Nordstrom are among the store chains that got their start here. Starbucks opened its first coffee house in the Pike Place Market in 1971.

Like !WOW! and  Amazon, Starbucks tests projects locally before exporting them elsewhere. It opened its first Roastery, a high-end coffee bar, in an old Packard dealership in the city, and plans to open up to 30 more in places as far-flung as Shanghai, New York and Tokyo.

Several years ago, it came up with a new idea for building drive-through Starbucks stores out of recycled shipping containers to promote sustainability, trying out the design just South of Seattle before opening others across the country.

''It's very much of a community of early adopters,'' said Leonard Garfield, executive director of the Museum of History and  Industry in Seattle.

One of Amazon's more puzzling retail experiments in Seattle is the Treasure Truck, a roaming delivery tuck retrofitted with carnival-style lights and signs, from which customers can pick up items offered during flash sales through the Amazon mobile app.

The truck, which seems like the offspring of a billboard and an ice-cream truck, has sold wild  mahi-mahi steaks, paddle boards and Nintendo game consoles.

Adam Croft, an audio producer for Microsoft, described the Treasure Truck as a  ''party bus''  and said he had bought it a drone and a  ''Star Wars''  BB-8 droid toy from it. 

He has also patronized Amazon's bookstores in Seattle and thought it clever of the company to require customers to scan bar codes on books with their phones to get prices, which can fluctuate.

''Seattleites will say that they hate Amazon taking over downtown, but at the same time when Amazon rolls something special, after every one complaints about it-

The first thing the people want to do is go check it out,'' said Mr. Croft, who says his employment with another technology company doesn't color his views about Amazon. 

Not everyone agrees. ''I don't use any Amazon services,'' Sherman Alexie, the novelist and poet, who lives in Seattle, wrote in an email.

Mr. Alexie who has an office in the South Lake Union neighbourhood, where many of the Amazon's office buildings are found, believes the company's goal is to replace  human workers  with as much automation as possible.

*Amazon has created hundreds of thousands of jobs, but by some estimates has not made up for the positions eliminated by the crumbling of bricks-and-mortars retailers*

The  company's growth has contributed to a booming economy in its hometown, where the median single-family home price jumped to $548,000 last year from $340,000 five years ago, according to the Northwest Multiple Listing Service.

As much as Seattle residents like technology, some locals say the population is more representative of the rest of the country than shoppers in other cities.

''San Francisco is ludicrously tech forward,''  said Dan Shapiro, the chief executive of a start-up called Glowforge, that makes a laser cutting device.
''What's interesting to me about Seattle is it's tech-friendly and prosperous as you can go without being completely off the rails.''

James Adams, a principal at 5ive creative, a design firm in Seattle, put it differently : ''We're the most Midwest West Coast city there i. I don't mean that negatively. We're not so coastal, We're not L.A.''  

Some Seattle retailers are looking at Amazon's local experiments with more bafflement than fear.

As the owner of one of Seattle's most prominent bookstores, the Elliott Bay Book Company. Peter Aaron should by all accounts be terrified of Amazon's bookstore.

But Elliott bay had record sales last year, and he can't figure out why Amazon, with its size, would bother with the relatively low sales volumes of physical bookstores.

Amazon's global book sales are estimated to be in the billions of dollars, which would dwarf the proceeds from an independent shop.

''I know these are very smart people,'' Mr. Aaron said. ''I assume there's some kind of a design or plan that makes sense, I can't figure out why they're doing it.''

With most respectful dedication to all the Leaders of the free world, Grand Parents, Parents, Students, Professors and Teachers of the World. See Ya all on !WOW!   -the World Students Society and Twitter-!E-WOW!  -the Ecosystem 2011:
