Considering the size of Amazon and Nike, it isn’t surprising that the deal’s ramifications are already being felt across the industry. Potential competitors have already been affected, with other sports businesses losing more than $1 billion USD in market value in the first day after the news was announced. The two biggest losses were recorded by J. C. Penney, which lost 6% of its value, and Foot Locker, which lost around 5%.
