After the Facebook-Jio deal, now the legendary e-commerce company Amazon has started a special program to provide better facilities to customers. During lockdown, demand for other essential products including groceries has increased. In such a situation, Amazon is placing bets on nearby grocery stores and retailers.
Due to social distancing, people are avoiding exit and paying attention to online orders. In view of this, Amazon has launched Local Shops on Amazon program. Under this, more than 5,000 nearby grocery stores will be added online and small stores will get the opportunity to do digital business.
