It's not obvious to me. I see too many counter-examples to that theory for me to jump to any sweeping conclusion right now.
However, there are certainly some - even many - examples of that effect. And there ae lots of crappy eommerce websites that I would never buy from in a million years. There's just too much of a mix for me to say that stomping out small ecommerce websites is the underlying strategy.
