Prime Day 2020 - Pandemic Impact Amazon Prime Day
Pandemic Impact Amazon's Prime Day 2020 was delayed amid the pandemic and will take place 10/13-14.
He is finally here AMAZON Prime Day, the annual sale event will be held 10/13-14/2020.
The biggest event sale typically takes place in mid-July as a way to boost revenue during an otherwise slow summer retail season. But like just about everything else in 2020, Prime Day was impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.
At the beginning Amazon delayed the event, however, as the retailer struggled to retrofit its sprawling logistics operations to handle both a surge in online orders and dozens of protocols designed to keep its warehouse workers safe.
The changes delayed shipments for months. After delivery times improved, Amazon had the ability to forge ahead with Prime Day.
After the company hosted its annual fall product launch, revealing a redesigned set of Echo speakers, the new Echo Show 10 smart display and an in-home security drone. We definitely can tell that they will have lots of new and updated gadgets and services of its own to pitch to consumers on Prime Day.
Another impact of the new Prime Day dates is that many Prime customers may end up buying their holiday gifts earlier than usual because the sale will be held much closer to year's end.
Don't Worry, sales during the pandemic have been substantially higher than usual, and that trend isn't expected to stop anytime soon. I mean Amazon isn't expected to eat into its holiday season sales by holding Prime Day so late.
