Amazon ‘moving Prime Day to September instead of July’ in push to get back to normal after coronavirus – The Sun
AMAZON is reportedly moving Prime Day to September instead of July in an effort to get back to normal after the coronavirus crisis.
Reports indicate that the delivery juggernaut is moving its two-day shopping promotion to the fall as it inches towards pre-pandemic normalcy.
Its discounted sales event was postponed due to strains on the company’s warehouses amid surging COVID-19 demands.
Sources told the Wall Street Journal the Seattle-based company is also moving towards allowing unlimited shipments of nonessential goods to warehouses and a wide variety of products.
This indicates it will be able to process orders quicker in its various warehouses and make more room for storing products.
But the WSJ noted that even though delivery is sped up, the eCommerce giant owned by Jeff Bezos can't top its pre-pandemic shipping times quite yet.
Coronavirus has caused unprecedented demand, infected and killed workers, disrupted warehouse operations, and resulted in employee protests.
Employees who continued to go to work during the crisis were recently given thank you t-shirts this week after Amazon ended its coronavirus wage rise.
The branded merchandise which read "thanks to you" and "together we'll deliver" are to say thanks to staff who have been working during the coronavirus pandemic.
