We (the people) didn't "let him" become so big.
We *made* him big because we are lazy and will pay for his company to provide a service.

While Amazon Go is more of a convenience store, with limited groceries and prepared foods, the intention is to apply the technology to Whole Foods, according to WSJ's sources. An average Whole Foods has 34,000 items. Both Amazon and Whole Foods declined to comment on the rumor to the news outlet, but given Amazon purchased the supermarket chain for a whopping $13.7 billion last year, the partnership makes sense.
Amazon has 711 type stores called GO Amazon with no cashiers inside just machines. Now they are contemplating putting this system in bigger stores, some say such as Whole Foods where they have thousands of employees who will have to Go. No pun intended
