Amazon’s “Summer Sale” event aims to boost retailers impacted by COVID-19
Amazon has announced “Summer Sale” event that’s designed to provide a boost for sellers feeling the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic and the delay of the company’s annual Prime Day event.
The event will begin on June 22, and is expected to run anywhere from 7 to 10 days long, reports CNBC.
Amazon is still finalizing details around the event, which isn’t named, but has been given a working title of the “Biggest Sale in the Sky.” The company is in the process of finalizing the landing pages for the event and asked sellers to submit deals for items with a discount of at least 30%.
It’s unclear what items will be discounted as part of the sale or whether it will be restricted to Prime subscribers.
The summer sale will likely help some retailers sell the extra inventory that’s accumulated in their warehouses over the past months.
