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.

Drawing on more than 120 years of history serving the retail design market, VMSD magazine provides retail professionals with the most up-to-date, innovative retail design ideas and industry news through its industry-leading magazine, website, social media channels and bulletins.
