Amazon.com Inc. (Seattle) has announced its new services called Amazon Local Selling which will offer in-store pick-up and local delivery for businesses, according to a company press release.

Third-party sellers that use Amazon will be able to list their products in Amazon’s store for customers in a designated/local area for in-store pick-up or local delivery. Sellers can also provide regional offers or discounts across product categories, or even opt to sell larger or fragile items that are too bulky to ship. Add-on services like assembly or installation can be included.

Local selling is currently being offered to national retailers, as well as small- and medium-sized businesses. This announcement comes ahead of the holiday season to help ease the influx of delivery that will be needed.

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
