HOLIDAY AMAZON

Taking a page from ghosts of retail past—Sears and Toy’s ‘R’ Us—Amazon has released its first holiday toy catalog. Vox breaks it down.

In a bid to entice new Prime membership, Amazon will offer free shipping to all comers comers this holiday season. Amazon is hoping that once shoppers get a taste of the prime, they won’t want to go back.

In anticipation of the holiday spike, Amazon is hiring thousands of delivery drivers to add to its network. This move is intended to complement delivery supply from UPS, USPS, and others, as well as continuing to build inroads on its last-mile ownership.
