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.

Over the years, INSTORE has won 80 international journalism awards for its publication and website. Contact INSTORE's editors at [email protected].

It’s Going to Set Us Up Very Nicely for Retirement

You’ve worked hard all your life. And if you’re like most jewelers contemplating retirement, you’re hoping that your going-out-of-business sale will add to your nest egg — with minimal complications. That’s exactly what Doug and Jacki Friedrich, fourth-generation owners of Friedrich Jewelers Inc., of Vernon, Conn., experienced when they selected Wilkerson to run their sale. “Jewelers who are contemplating a sale should go with Wilkerson because of their experience,” says Doug. And with financial goals “exceeding expectations,” the couple can now focus on enjoying the next chapter of their lives. “It’s going to set us up very nicely for retirement,” says Jacki. “The money’s coming in and we have no complaints. It’s been wonderful.”
