NEW YORK - Amazon, which sells just about anything online, also hawks discounted beef and seafood from the back of trucks. The Treasure Truck, as it is called, is a way for Amazon to connect with shoppers in person, expand its physical presence and help promote itself. Truck sales are a tiny piece of the giant online retailer’s business. But one analyst says the value to Amazon may be in the app downloads the trucks generate, their ability to test what products are hot sellers, and the buzz they create. BY Joseph Pisani.
